Had a problem earlier this week, webmail couldn't always send e-mail. It was coming back with the following error:
SMTP Error: SMTP error: Connection failed: Failed to connect socket: Connection timed out.
Have you ever had a linux server or desktop which all of a sudden couldn't create a file - running "df -h" shows you your disk partitions aren't full?
You've logged in as root to check - and yup you still can't write any files - even a "touch test.txt" fails with a message saying can't write file - disk or partition full?
With linux servers a couple of things can take up disk-space unexpectedly. Log files is the usual culprit, but if your server is a rented one you might be stuck with a bit of a weird partition setup.
For some reason some hosts will give little storage to partitions which then get filled up unexpectedly.
