Hi guys,

I have a question regarding to change the mail saving directory.

Why I am doing this:
I am running 2 Hard drive (1 x SSD 60GB as Primary for boot, 1 x 500GB Secondary drive install in the optibay)

The mail App has been storing my mails, total of 7.xxGB in the hidden library folder and I am running out of storage on my SSD drive. Therefore I want to change the saving directory to my 500 GB Secondary drive.

Can anyone please advice how I can change it? I want all the original mails are moving to the new directory too.

Please let me know if I am not clear here.

Thank you very much for any of your help! Highly appreciated!
