Overfilled message queue. I need very ugent help!
Our intranet server using sendmail stopped delivering messages.
I found that the /var partition is filled up to 107%, possibly due to the extremely large /var/spool directory.
Please help me how to empty the message queue of sendmail so that it can be fit again, and the messages in the queue presently be preserved for future processing? (I.e. no mails should be lost).
Please be specific as I am a green newbie to sendmail, I do not even know how to start and stop it.
