Hello,

I came to the point where my disc is full. I've realized it after the weekend. Now a deleted some files to get back some space. Could it be that I've lost some mails or won't POP3 download delete the mails on the source server until the delivery is successful. Is there a way to get be warned if the drive is nearly full? I don't look at the mail-server every day.

If you're server is that much 'undersized', it would be best to DO look at your server every day...

You can make sure these situations do not occur, if you set quota's on your users that (in total) cannot exceed disk capacity. That's of course taking into account other disk-filling factors like backups, etc.

I know that but that's no answer to my questions. We are still in migration-progress. There's now 40 GB free again, so the size is ok. I forgot to stop the backups for the old separate mailserver.

Go to Kerio Mailserver Administration Console, Configuration, Advanced Options, Store Directory tab. There you'll find the 'Storage Space Watchdog' settings...

The WatchDog is enabled and set to warn me if free space is below 1 GB. But I haven't seen a warning on the server or in the admin-account.

Well, if you don't look at the server (as stated in your opening post), you won't see it. Cool I think it's supposed to be a 'bubble message' in your servers Notification Area and/or a message in the Administration Console's opening screen.

KMS doesn't have an option to email/net send/sms/sound alarm/etc when disk space is nearly full. But there are lot's of other tools to accomplish that at the OS level. Just Google for it and perhaps you'll even find a free tool (must be out there, I suppose).

Thanks. So I'll look for such tools. But what about my questions? Do I have lost the mails if the harddisk ist completely full?

I wouldn't know. Software, including the OS itself, starts to behave unpredictably in disk full situations. I've never encountered a disk-full situation and I'm sure few here have.

Do you know you lost emails or are you merely concerned you may have?

To be sure you'd better contact specialists at Kerio through the proper channels. (This forum is only for user to user discussion. Call Kerio or submit a support ticket for 'real' help.)

Oh, I thought some developers are also reading the forums. So I start a ticket.

They do read and sometimes comment here, but they don't find the forum to be an 'official' support channel, so they certainly won't jump in anytime they can.

Sometimes you get lucky and your questions are answered by the experts here. Mostly you have to make do with answers from unofficial experts like your co-Kerio-admins Smile
