    Trophy Points:
    I'm suddenly having all sorts of problems that may or may not be interrelated. First of all, I can't recieve mail, so I'm currently upgrading from mbox to maildir using these instructions:

    This process takes a very long time...frankly i dont know if it will ever finish...the time in top says 900 hours...

    in the mean time, apparently my disk quota filled up (even tho its a dedicated server) sites dont take up any room really...apparently sda2 is only 2 gigs and its full, mounted on '/', but after deleting analog logs its still full, deleting files that i put there arent changing anything and this gives the error:
    So i cant get into cpanel...thats one thing...

    Exim has stopped receiving mail for all users on my centOS server. It still
    sends, however when connecting from home I get the "Domain Name Mismatch"
    thunderbird security error, dunno if this is related. It won't receive any
    emails, nor will they even send bounce notifications. A little before i
    stopped receiving emails, my server was getting hulked by something
    grepping, creating and tarring the exim logs which were measured in i made the following php script to be cronned daily:

    shell_exec('rm -f /var/log/exim_mainlog');
    shell_exec('touch /var/log/exim_mainlog');
    shell_exec('chown mailnull /var/log/exim_mainlog');
    shell_exec('chgrp mail /var/log/exim_mainlog');

    ...the exim_paniclog gives the error "User 0 set for local_delivery
    transport is on the never_users list", googling around says to do this as a
    fix for that error:

    ln -s
    /scripts/eximup --force
    /etc/rc.d/init.d/exim restart

    after trying this fix, there was no change except that I had to delete and
    renew my certificate in order to send, still cant receive..

    Is it okay to blow that log away? Is my domain info screwed up? How can I
    get my mail working again? Where can i delete some files to keep cpanel happy?

    Any help would be much appreciated, I'm going crazy,
