I'm a little confused... if you want to move /var/mail to /usr/var/mail why are you messing around with /home at all?
As I said - that was a dry run to see if this would work the way I thought it would (it didn't). I'ld rather practice with a users home directory that isn't important than risk screwing up people's mail boxes.
This is what I would do... ... stop your smtp program ... stop your pop/imap program tar zcvpf /tmp/varmail.tpgz /var/mail mkdir -p /usr/var mv /var/mail /usr/var/mail ln -s /usr/var/mail /var/mail ... restart your smtp/pop/imap programs...
Thanks. I'll try this tomorrow. On a users home directory first... Lisa Casey _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
