 RE: Moving Mailboxes from /var/mail to $home/mail
Author: Thomas Ngo

Unfortunately, that doesn't work. I get the following message.

Jun 29 13:49:44 xxx sendmail[13022]: NAA13021: to=<>, ctladdr=<> (1002/1002), delay=00:00:01, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=local, relay=local, stat=Service unavailable

I can't make a hardlink either because /var and /home directories is on another filesystem. Is there any reason why freebsd have mail hardcoded somewhere that makes mailboxes always point to /var/mail? I have tried procmail as well but, I would have to recompile qpopper and imap too... I guess I would have to go that route then. Thanx

Have you tried moving the files and creating a symbolic link? There might be a better way.
