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.
