    Hi,

    Anyone know how to move the exim spool folder from the root disk to a separate disk in order to reduce disk io?

    Yes, It's possible. Please try with following command.

    Code:
    service exim stop
    mv /var/spool /New-partition-name
    ln -s /New-partition-name/spool /var/spool
    service exim start
