Mail Me Do!

So today, on of our servers wouldn't send emails from a registration form which lead to a few of us scratching our heads (non of us are linux nerds [appart from jim - a bit]).

After a bit of digging we remembered that the server relays it's mail through one of the windows workstations. Matt checked the mail root on this box to find that it was crammed full. The drop box had 11,000 unsent mails from the last two days. The bad mail folder wouldn't open.

So Matt started set about deleting the items from a command prompt... It's now been running for over two hours and no sign of easing up. We're guessing at a couple of million emails in there.

Maybe it'll be done by tomorrow morning
