Hi there,

I have Redhat linux 8 with sendmail running. Recently I am running out of space on /var/spool/mail, and mails are getting bounced back to the sender. I have enough space in /usr partition. Can I use that partition for storing my incoming mails, if so, how can I go about it ? I have read about fixing this problem by creating symlink of /var/spool/mail to /usr/mail. Will it be possible, if so, how can I create that link ?

Thanks & Advance
