Situation

When trying to send mail getting a 452 Server file system failure error in the gwia log for all or most outbound messages.
GWIA configured to use a mail relay host, such as GWAVA: Properties of GWIA | SMTP/MIME Settings | Relay Host for outbound messages
Mail relay host server has low available disk space.

Resolution

Resolve the disk space issue on the mail relay host server.

Alternatively, configure GWIA to send without a relay host defined for outbound messages (smtp port 25 and dns resolutions port 53):
Properties of GWIA | SMTP/MIME Settings | Relay Host for outbound messages

Cause

Mail relay host server (ie. GWAVA) has insufficient disk space to process these outbound messages from the GWIA
