I am getting these errors on my var filesystem but df -h shows there is plenty of space available.

I have restarted the mimdefang process but I get the same messages.

What can I do?

Purge some old log files to start with. However according to your df above you should have plenty of room
I have deleted logs and lost+found but the same messages still show up.

Check df -i as you may have run out of inodes rather than out of file space.

Looks as though I have plenty of inodes

muse2# df -i

Have you rebooted since the
problem showed up?
I have not rebooted yet


can I fun fsck on a live filesystem or do I have to drop into single usermode?
