    relocating /3rdparty/mailman/archives directory

    Some of my users have been doing alot of attachments and stuff in mailman and its quickly building the /3rdparty/mailman/archives directory which is filling up my /usr partition.

    Does anyone have a recommended way to relocate this whole file structure, how to do it and if it can break anything ?. What steps to take to move it
    so I dont screw up mailman and then have to do reinstalls or reloading backups.

    I have tons of space on /home and / but at the rate these people are going they will fill up /usr pretty soon and I want to get that headach out of the way.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I have the same problem. Some discussion going on about this here:

    We recently moved the mailman archives, which was taking up the bulk of /usr, but now those archives aren't being backed up, so we are still looking for a better solution.
