    Default Mail Queue Error - No Space left on device --- any advice?

    Hi all,

    First time posting here, and in a bit of a bind. Any advice would be much appreciated.

    - Mail has been backed up in queue for about 24 hours.
    - Zimbra has been installed and running well on our servers for over a year. Current version: 8.0.4_GA_5737
    - It is on a Xen virtual server
    - I don't currently have access to the virtual server running Zimbra, nor the Xen Dom0 (But do have root on other virtual servers on this machine)
    - I have full admin access to the web interface.
    - Primary server admin is not accessible for a few days.
    - about 800 messages are in the Deferred Mail Queue (and growing)

    More info:
    - content filter: smtp-amavis:[]:10024
    - Reason: Host [] said 421 4.3.2. service shutting down, error writing to mail file: no space left on device at (eval 113) line 180. (In reply to end of data command)
    - it looks like the amavis disk use has maxed out the space available

    Screen shot 2013-10-02 at 2.12.01 PM.jpg

    So ... I know that if I had access to the server right now I restart amavis/zimbra and things would likely be fine, but that doesn't appear to be an option in the next day or so.

    Any other help or advice, either to solve or isolate the problem would be much appreciated.

    thanks all

    hey all ...
    I know there are a lot of posts in these forums about dealing with this issue from the shell ...
    but what I'm hoping here is for some advice on something I may have overlooked in dealing with it from the web admin.

    trying to assess if I have to indeed wait a few days for the server admin to be accessible, or if I can take care of it myself.

    thanks again
