Hmmmmmm. That directory contains only files which represent e-mail
messages in flight.
This may not be good.

So you have really big files that are taking up a bunch of room
in /var - and so there is no room in /var/mail to deliver them.
Sendmail keeps trying, but there's no place for them to go.
So - the question is - were the undelivered messages you deleted
valuable, or were they junk mails?
