sendmail[5129]: NOQUEUE: low on space

sendmail[5129]: NOQUEUE: low on space (have 0,
SMTP-DAEMON needs 101 in /var/spool/mqueue)

We're getting this message on our Solaris (Apache/1.3.19) server. Can anyone give me an idea of what to look at? I'd really appreciate it!

The error message has all the clues you need: sendmail is trying to write to /var/spool/mqueue but it is failing because the disk is full. Check your disk space usage with 'df -k'. You will need to expand the partition or archive/remove some files that not needed.

I guess I had error message blindness. I've been using Windows too long and am used to error messages that don't give you a darned clue.

Thank you!
