Inbound mail is stuck in Exchange 2010 queue

When I came into work this morning I started getting complaints that users could send email but were not receiving email.  When I look at the queue viewer, I see there are about 800 messages stuck in the queue.  The event log gives me two messages.  See below

I have a lot of diskspace on the C drive where exchange is installed, but I have an E drive where I have all the exchange logs go, and that drive is almost full.  Could these be the problem?

setasoujiroCommented:
indeed that will be the problem.
As Sumit here said, backing up with an exchange aware backup program will flush the logs

I expanded the drive that the log files go to and mail started flowing again.  I will be running a full backup tonight to purge the log files.  Thanks.
