Thanks a lot everyne for your suggestions, especially the obvius crash
After analyzing the data in a calm and quit environment I found out the
common thing on the machines.
Postfix is assuming a lot of things when it moves around the mail.
I really think the OS should be able to handle this in a better way but
running postfix on anything else than an ext2 filesystem can give you
problems under heavy load and bad luck!
When I have found a solution for the problem I will let you know.
I saw something about exporting the directories via nfs with option sync
and mounting them back again, it is a long story.....
