    I have a couple clients with large mail storage requirements.

    If we mount an additional drive whose job it is to store these clients' message stores, is it as simple as this:
    mkdir /big/home/example/mail/example.com
    mv /home/example/mail/example.com /big/home/example/mail/example.com
    ln -s /big/home/example/mail/example.com /home/example/mail/example.com/

    Any security or other operational issues to concern myself with?

    Is there a wiser approach?

    Hello :)

    The method you provided should work as intended, however you could also mount the new drive as /home2 and rearrange the entire account to that new partition if you want to avoid using symbolic links.

    Thank you.
