Re: /var/mail back to /var/spool/mail
I have a technical reason for wanting mail in /var/spool as
well. I have things in /var/spool that tend to grow to huge sizes (as
does /var/log, but I live with that).
I genrally have /var/spool on a separate partition, and
generally have different policies for /var/spool that I do for /var
in general (I have news, mirrors, and mail -- the major uncontrolled
external data feeds feed into /var/spool/ partition).
Personally, I am inclined to have /var/spool/log and have all
my unknown data size stuff be in the /var/spool partition, but I know
that is unlikely to fly.
Why are we getting away from this? just because of
compatibility? aesthetics? What am I missing?
