    Default Urgent problem with sending to an "allstaff"

    We're expecting some inclement weather tomorrow and we would like to be able to send to our students an email stating that we are cancelling classes for the day should we have to close the campus. We have an "allstaff" distribution list set up with all of our users in it and when testing this out (we've just now gotten around to actually using this) I get the following error:

    Out: 220 myserver.com ESMTP Postfix
    In: EHLO myserver.com
    Out: 250-myserver.com
    Out: 250-PIPELINING
    Out: 250-SIZE 42048000
    Out: 250-VRFY
    Out: 250-ETRN
    Out: 250-STARTTLS
    Out: 250 8BITMIME
    In: MAIL FROM:<admin@myserver.com>
    Out: 250 Ok
    In: RCPT TO:<allstaff@myserver.com>
    Out: 250 Ok
    In: DATA
    Out: 354 End data with <CR><LF>.<CR><LF>
    Out: 451 Error: queue file write error
    In: QUIT
    Out: 221 Bye


    Help!!

    write error?

    Did you do a disk check?

    Everything is ok, plenty of space, no errors. Sends mail just fine otherwise.

    This allstaff has probably over 30K users in it, would that have something to do with it?

    Default Side question

    Is there a way to protect a distrobution list so that only 'local' users can send to it?

    What I would like to avoid is to not have the address end up on a spam list somewhere and make it easy for a spammer to send one email to all my users.

    Not currently, there is a request for enhancement open for that.
