    I was wondering if it is possible to store the emails on a separate storage location? I was thinking on a specific folder on a NAS, for example.
    Our VM will run out of space once in awhile, and either resizing the VM or erasing lots of emails will solve the issue.

    My thoughts were to put the emails some place else, to avoid the VM running out of space.
    How would it be set up in ISPConfig?

    What might the advantages and disadvantages to it?

    you can.. i assume the nas can run nfs..
    just have it mount the nfs share to /var/vmail
    (having mounted it in another location first, stopping postfix/dovecot, and syncing the contents of /var/vmail to the nfs share.)
    ahrasis and till like this.
