Hello,
    How do I set the coldfusion mail spool directory to something other than the default... for performance reasons I want to point the spool to a raid 0.

Cheers,
Rick

Look at the "neo-mail.xml" file in the lib directory under your cfmx main directory. I have not changed this particular neo.... file but I have had to make mods to other neo... files.

Make sure you make a backup before altering, and within the "neo-mail.xml" you should see a var called "undeliverdir" and one called "sooldir" change these to where you want your mail spooled, stop and start cfmx and see what happens.

In theory...should work. May want to try it on a dev box, like I said, I have never changed this but should work.

Here is what my "neo-mail.xml" file looks like on my dev box.

<wddxPacket version='1.0'><header/><data><struct type='coldfusion.server.ConfigMap'>
<var name='mailsentloggingenable'><boolean value='false'/></var>
<var name='undeliverdir'><string>{neo.rootdir}/Mail/Undelivr</string></var>
<var name='server'><string>mail.cableone.net</string></var>
<var name='schedule'><number>15.0</number></var>
<var name='severity'><string>debug</string></var>
<var name='timeout'><number>60.0</number></var>
<var name='port'><number>25.0</number></var>
<var name='spoolenable'><boolean value='true'/></var>
<var name='spooldir'><string>{neo.rootdir}/Mail/Spool</string></var>
</struct></data></wddxPacket>

Let us know if it works, be good info for the future.

Could not resist a test...just change my dev box "neo-mail.xml" file to point my mail files elsewhere, seems to work fine.

here is what my old and new portiions of neo-mail.xml file look like...

old - <var name='undeliverdir'><string>{neo.rootdir}/Mail/Undelivr</string></var>
       <var name='spooldir'><string>{neo.rootdir}/Mail/Spool</string></var>


new -<var name='undeliverdir'><string>C:/MyCFMail/Undelivr</string></var>
        <var name='spooldir'><string>C:/MyCFMail/Spool</string></var>

My CfusionMX folder is on my D: drive, so I changed the mail spool and undelivered folders to a different drive and folder name, cf did not seem to mind. Sent one test mail and saw it in spool for a second before it was sent...
