problems rotating logs


I have received this mail on my admin account...

errors occured while rotating /var/log/maillog

syslogd: no process killed
error running postrotate script

But it's not only maillog, it's also almost every log that needs to be rotated. I just haven't includel all the mails here, because it would be to long of a msg. The mail is the same only the /var/log/<different name>.

I can't track the problem down...It was working yesterday and it's not working today..anyone has any ideas what to check??

best regards,
