SMTP and IIS Moving the Mailroot directory

Last Modified: 2008-04-24
Is it possible to move the Mailroot directory to another partition? The problem I am having is our C: partition gets filled up and causes the server to lock up.
I know within IIS you can move websites but there doesn't seem to be an option to move the mailroot directory.

I am running a Win2k server IIS 5.0

Thanks again.
