Move the spool directory

This feature allows you to change the default location of the spool directory.
It is useful if you have not enough disk space on the current location.

  • On the Postfix MTA system, select Service tab.
  • Click on the Move the Queue directory icon.


  • The Form display the current used size of the partition that store the spool directory and inodes used.
  • To move the directory, change the value of the Directory field.


This operation will change the location of the spool directory, usually /var/spool directory.
This task will move all content of the spool directory to the new directory and make a symbolic link to the original place.
