Lately we are seeing this error in the maillog several times a day:
Oct 28 15:10:03 mail mimedefang-multiplexor: Slave 1 stderr:
MIME::Parser: can't flush: No space left on device at
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.9/MIME/Parser.pm line 815, <FILE>
The /var drive has plenty of room. The /tmp drive is nearly full with
5 large files owned by mailnull:
-rw------- 1 mailnull wheel 167779519 Oct 28 12:39 qhNzfFSRG3
If I delete one of these large files in /tmp, they reappear after a few minutes.
This started about a week ago on a system that has been running OK for
quite a while.
I have tried restarting mimedefang.
Are these big files being created by mimedefang? I didn't think it
used /tmp by default. Could this problem be caused by cleverly crafted
Suggestions on how to troubleshoot this would be appreciated.
