i have noticed although the user accounts quotas will never exceed our current mac os 10.4 server hard drive size, with archiving enabled of course the hard drive is slowing running out of room. currently at 80% of hard drive capacity.

my question is - can i move the archive folder to a local raid drive connected via firewire? if this is possible, will that just archive the new emails or will it automatically store all the old ones as well?

i assume that it will be just the newer ones and i will have to go into terminal to relocate the older ones? if so how do i go about it? also once this archive folder has been moved will it actually free up some space on the server hard drive to enable more space for more users to be added?

if anyone can shed any light on this i would be very grateful. thanks

Yes, if you change the archive location, you will have to manually move the messages from the old archive location to the new one. Ideally, you would do this while the mail server is shutdown.

Have you considered storing the archives in compressed format?

many thanks for your reply.

i would consider it, but i just wonder how easy it would be to get to these messages again, as i understand in a compressed form, archived messages won't be able to be read in the admin's account?

i would like to keep things as simple as possible for my boss who would ultimately need to look through colleagues' emails from time to time.

may be the easiest thing to do is either transfer to a new server with a larger hard drive or transfer the start up volume to the firewire raid which has double the capacity of the current hard drive?
