I was not member in the group mail. This is now fixed. I can create
and delete other files in that directory now.

In other words, "> /var/spool/mail/foo" succeeds, doesn't it?
I did not know this is a valid command. But yes, it shows the same result as
touch /var/spool/mail/foo

Of course I do this as user hiran without sudo... ;-)
Still I get the same message:

Error expunging:609: Input/output error

Strange. Just in case, are there enough free space on the device that
hosts /var/mail? It should have at least 8M available.
I'm sure there is plenty of room left.

address@hidden:/var/spool/mail$ df

So it is not access rights, it is not disk space. What next?
