only thing I can think to check is your quotas on /var partition, are you 
at your quota limit?

you also may want to try setting up the client on your linux box to not 
use the mta at all, just configure mozilla or evolution client on the 
linux box to get the emails directly from the isp, not mbox, this would 
sort out whether it is an MTA issue or just a general linux and/or distro 
issue.  trying another email client would also be a good troubleshooting
