By maillogs do you mean /var/log/maillog, /var/log/messages, etc.? If
so, look into logrotate so that automatic maintenance is performed to
clean up old deadwood automatically.
I suspect that if the disk is full that pretty much everything will come
to a halt if it needs to write to that partition.
A great resouce is Julian's book on MailScanner available from his web
site. It's well worth the cost (which isn't that much). Also there's
some good documentation at http://www.fsl.com/support/, in particular
the MailScanner Manual.
