    Default [SOLVED] Help! - My mailbox.log files are continously growing and crashing my system

    My mailbox.log files are growing out of control (some days 29GB, 40GB) and crashing Zimbra. Need help fast - I can't open these files to see what's wrong because their too large. Re-booted system and problem persists. I'm running 6.04 NE.

    How about telling us what's in them? You could use tail to see a specific number of lines in the file.

    Did you search the forums for this problem, I have a recollection that this has been mentioned before - do a quick search. I'd also suggest you upgrade to the most recent version of Zimbra.
    Regards

    Default Found Problem

    Thanks Phoenix for the tip using tail. I totally forgot about that command. I was able to track the problem to a rogue Autoarchiva workstation and reclaimed my disk space. I do appreciate the quick response.

    Thanks, Again!!!

    You're welcome but I'd still suggest you upgrade to the most recent Zimbra release. Anyway, glad you fixed the problem.

    He must have been reading your profile information on which version. You should update that
