    Cannot close service.cnf (FrontPage 2000)

    When I try to publish a Web page I get an error message "Server error - cannot close service.cnf". I can not find this file on my HD. I rebooted and started FP again and get the same error.

    Every reference to that error I can find points to a message similar to:

    "Your account is over its disk quota. You need to either delete some files or request additional disk space"

    You are correct. The problem was caused by 195 Megs of spam addressed to unknown names at my domain. I made the mistake of changing the forwarding of unknown names to my domain to my POP to eliminate some of the spam I was receiving. I just deleted the data in the forwarding field. Apparently the spam filled the available disk space. Last evening when I tried to publish I got the error message. (services.cnf is a FP extension file) The next morning I knew something was wrong when I had not received any mail for 12 hours. My hosting company, Verio, had me set up a null account that will capture and then delete this junk when it hits the server. I will never see it and I should not have this problem again.
