SMTP Error 452 Insufficient system storage

As usual am trying to help a friend out and she has a software program that is sending email to her SMTP server and in the log file from the software program it is showing the messages going out then they quit sending after awhile and the following error shows up in the log file,
9/15/2004 2:57:49 PM RECEIVE: 354 Start mail input; end with <CRLF>.<CRLF>

9/15/2004 2:57:49 PM SENDING: MAIL FROM: ########
9/15/2004 2:57:49 PM RECEIVE: 452 Insufficient system storage

9/15/2004 2:57:49 PM ERROR RESPONSE: 452 Insufficient system storage
9/15/2004 2:57:50 PM SENDING: MAIL FROM: ##########

9/15/2004 2:57:50 PM RECEIVE: 250 Resetting

This error shows up a few times then after that the program stops sending I am assuming because the SMTP server can no longer accept emails.  She thinks it is a problem with the software program but I think it is with the SMTP server but have no clue to be honest, could someone provide more information on the error (what may be causing it and why) and if the problem is with the SMTP Sever.
Thank you in advanced for your help!

Yep, the SMTP server is trying to tell her that it has run out of disk space. Talk to the owner/admin of that SMTP server to figger out how to clean it up.

No, not specifically. Its a fairly generic error message - the server to which your friend is trying to send mail has run out of disk space. Its not something your friend can do anything about. The owner/operator of the server needs to address the issue.

SMTP errors 4xx are called "TEMPFAIL" errors, because they refer to a temporary failure due to some correctable condition. The failure is on the receiving server, so that's where it needs to be fixed.
