I have been archiving the messages since August. I have hit a large file size on a raq2, mailspool is 167Mb as noted below.
The server has suddenly started bouncing ALL mail to the domains on the server, they all appear to be involved. In general the raq2 is sluggish, and FTP fails to allow users, mail access via pine to the large mailbox results in a core dump. The system has been restarted.
I hate to reintialize, it has been in service for 3plus years now, and getting everything back up will not be any fun.
/var/spool/mail/bill": 55406 messages

Any perspective would be appreciated.
