Because of "/var" size considerations, I'd like to use a symlinked "/usr" directory for email instead of "/var/mail".
Based on today's research, I think the following will work. With mail delivery off, I 'su' and: mkdir /usr/var.mail cd /var cp -p mail/* /usr/var.mail/ mv mail mail.bak ln -s /usr/var.mail mail Since 'ls -l /var' shows: drwxrwxrwt 2 root mail 512 Dec 14 14:24 mail I should then: cd /usr chmod 1777 var.mail chown root:mail var.mail No changes are made to the "/var/mail" symlink. Then, if everything works, I just delete "/usr/mail.bak". Does this seem OK? Sorry to bother everyone with what's probably a trivial question, but I *really* want to avoid screwing-up. The machine is remote; accessed via ssh.
