Cron keeps mailing me about files too large to send. It comes from the command 'test -x /usr/sbin/run-crons && /usr/sbin/run-crons' that vixie-cron runs regularly.
The mail I get:
Code:

postdrop: warning: uid=109: File too large
sendmail: fatal: logcheck(109): message file too big
Error closing sendmail: non-zero exit (75) at /usr/bin/mime-construct line 559


I don't know what it is trying to send trough sendmail. So does someone know what the reason for the message is?
I don't know what config files I should add. So please ask for that. Thanks!

Seems that logcheck tries to email something like /var/log/messages (which may grow quite big if you don't have logrotate installed).

So I would suggest to:
  • Check file sizes in /var/log
  • Check the configuration (if any) of logcheck
  • Perhaps install logrotate to keep file sizes small enough to get sent by email
