    Squirrelmail is throwing:

    Warning: session_write_close(): write failed: No space left on device (28) in /usr/local/cpanel/base/3rdparty/squirrelmail/src/redirect.php on line 158

    Warning: session_write_close(): Failed to write session data (files). Please verify that the current setting of session.save_path is correct (/tmp) in /usr/local/cpanel/base/3rdparty/squirrelmail/src/redirect.php on line 158

    ===============
    I wasn't getting any errors using simple POP, but I hadn't noticed I didn't get any mail this morning until someone told me they couldn't get into Squirrel.
    Horde doesn't show any mail in the inbox, though the boxes are not empty.

    Restarted all services. Even tried a reboot.... no change.

    Running:WHM 10.3.1 cPanel 10.4.0-E56

    Haven't done ANY updates since the weekend (Chirpy's great updates). All was working great till this morning. Odd.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks, Brian

    Oh great one, that Chirpy is.

    He assisted me in increasing my /tmp size to get rid of this issue.
    Then helped me figure out why MailWatch wasn't working after the 'fix'.

    Thanks Jonathan. I can now have my delayed breakfast. :)

    I'm having similar problems - what was the fix?

    All mail is going into mailscanners quarantine. The error message appears to be "mailscanner could not analyze message".

    When trying to update apache, i am getting an error "no space left on device: error writing to /tmp/...."

    I'm running mailscanner with clamav, which had been working fine ever since chirpy installed it for me.

    That would seem to be the problem, i.e. your /tmp partition is full and needs to be cleared down.

    cheers chirpy.

    just cleared the /tmp folder, and it appears to have sorted the mailscanner issue. unfortunatly not in time to prevent 500 email messages going into the quarantine folder.

    the /tmp folder is currently 253mb, and the issue occured when it was just 15% used. guess i'll have to make the /tmp partition larger...

    I would have though that those emails should have been queued and processed later.

    I've found on several servers of late that a /tmp partition of 256MB is simply not enough (esp. for logwatch) and a 1GB partition is needed in such cases.
