    Need more space in the folder /var/vmail

    Hi, I have Debian 5, and my filesystem is:

    # df
    S.ficheros Bloques de 1K Usado Dispon Uso% Montado en
    /dev/md1 5162728 1235444 3665028 26% /
    tmpfs 2009864 0 2009864 0% /lib/init/rw
    udev 10240 92 10148 1% /dev
    tmpfs 2009864 0 2009864 0% /dev/shm
    /dev/md2 715398792 157468 678901096 1% /home

    I try to move the user vmail to /home/vmail but not working.

    I have the error:
    maildrop[24534]: Unable to create a dot-lock at /var/vmail/xxxxxxx

    If you can not move the user folder /var/vmail, can I place in another partition?

    I think I solved.
    Let's see what you think

    cd /var
    mv vmail /home
    ln -s /home/vmail vmail

    Thus consumption of disk space on the partition /home and mail working perfect.
