This is the mail system at host hostname.localdomain.

I'm sorry to have to inform you that your message could not
be delivered to one or more recipients. It's attached below.

                   The mail system

<[email protected]> (expanded from
    <[email protected]>): can't create user output file

The problem here is the user’s mailbox is full. If you’re using Virtualmin you might have hit the default 50MB mailbox size parameter. Increase the size of the mailbox and try again.
