Here's the deal.

Exchnage 2003 envir.

The badmail folder on one of the servers is filling up. I can run the scripts that are out there to clean it up but the C drive of the server its on is 9 GB. I want to move the location of that folder to a disk with a LOT more free disk space.

Any ideas.

Stop the default smtp virtual server, rename the badmail folder, create a new one with the same name and restart the virtual server. After that you can move the bad mail folder (renamed one) to another drive.
