    My customer inquiry is below and I am hoping someone can give me an answer to his question since I am unclear as if it will work. Thanks again, Sal

    I see the error was caused by 38.11MB in .trash and another 8.19MB in tmp. What generates those files and how can they be automatically kept off the server?

    Then he writes:
    I set the permissions to for .trash to 444 in the hopes no more junk mail can be written to this folder. Can we do the same to tmp?

    Have you actually looked in the temp directory? It contains all data for your stats.

    My guess is that the trash directory has not been cleaned out after deleting files via File Manager. Go back into FileMan and click the Trash Can icon. That'll empty the .trash

    Neither of these directories should be messed with, IMHO of course.
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
