mail problem

hi guys,

may i request for points/config to consider regarding my mailing problem.

there are a lot of mail queues that says a user's mailbox is full.

the only content of /var/spool/mail is a root file.

is this the mailbox being referred to?

why does other users don't have files under /var/spool/mail?

please advise.

thanks in advance.

Re: mail problem


Hi,
Check the rights of the dir /var/mail and /var/spool/mqueue and the suid and sgid bits of the sendmail executable.
