I received a failed update email from the GFI server this morning that it could not complete a BitDefender update due to insufficent disk space. Upon investigation the HDD partition that holds the GFI installation along with SPAM folder etc had reached max capacity due to a website SQL DB backup.
I cleaned up the partition to free up plenty of room and restarted the GFI services both security and essentials as I noticed that the Mail Security quaratine list did not list any emails from approx the time I received the email.
Mail Security seems to be working fine based on the quarantine list and the mail queues but since the reboot I have been receiving a lot of SPAM to all of the address that I am a recipient of and I can imagine that my users are as well. Also before the notification emails from mail security were being caught by Mail Essentials but now I am getting all of them!
What can I do to resolve this? The SPAM seems to be mostly the kind with an imbedded image with some plain text ones.
The GFI server is a gateway server that does not have exchange on it.
