    Plesk 7.5 for UNIX/Linux ---Need help please. We have run out of space on the partition where the mail files reside. I have moved the files to another larger partition. I just need to let qmail know where to drop the new mails. Currently mails are bouncing with the message -- Sorry, no mailbox by that name here.
    Have tried to change all references to the new partition via xinetd, init.d and the control files. Also have run qmail -showctl which still shows that /var/qmail is the qmail directory. Is it not possible to change this.

    Problem solved after some searching round.
    Once you have moved the mail files to the new location then you need to go to /var/qmail/control/assign and change all refrences to the new locations. Then run /var/qmail/bin/qmail-newu to produce a new cdb. Check you maintain all the permissions as they previously were. IMAP and POP3 need to know about the new locations , as in this case on Linux running xinetd, make the change there. All the best. :)
