    I am planning on running ISPConfig to host email for a few users and i have a couple of questions on how to properly administer the mailboxes.

    I am concerned that i am going to grow larger that my capacity to store emails and wanted to know if there was an efficient way to store the mail in a separate location when the boxes become too full, where i can access it and restore mail from it if neccessary.

    Im kinda new to linux also so im learning as i go so i will appreciate all the help anyone can offer.

    If you install ISPConfig with maildir support, every mail is in a separate file. You can copy them by filedate to another location and copy them back if you need.

    That depends on the settings of the email account. If you have a domain and a user web1_tom and dont change the default website location, the emails are stored in:

    /home/www/ and subdirectories.
