Topic: iRedMail-0.5.0-rc2

Flexible storage base directory used to store users' mail data, easy
      to change, useful for large-scale deployment. e.g.:
        Your mail data are all stored in /home/vmail01, but disk storage is
        nearly full, it's easy to make new users use new storage like
        /home/vmail02, /home/vmail03 or whatever:
            - Prevous maildir: /home/vmail01/z/zh/zha/zhang/
            - Current maildir: /home/vmail02/h/hu/hua/huang/
      You can set the storage base directory in either MySQL (column:
      vmail.storagebasedirectory) or OpenLDAP backend (attribute:
      storageBaseDirectory).

The FHS (file hierarchy standard) suggests to put mails under /var/mail.

It´s better to move /home/vmail01/ to /var/mail/vmail01 ...

Don´t forget to change /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf:
mail_location = maildir:/var/mail/vmail01/%d/%n/Maildir
namespace private -> /var/mail/vmail01

AMAVIS: If you are using custom settings in /etc/amavis/conf.d/20-debian_defaults move them to /etc/amavis/conf.d/50-user file (20-debian_defaults  changing during an update).

Thanks for your suggestion, It will be changed in 0.5.0-release. and use /var/mail/ as vmail user's HOME directory, /var/mail/vmail01 as default (first) mail storage -- so that system admin can mount other/extra storage under /var/mail/.

AMAVIS: If you are using custom settings in /etc/amavis/conf.d/20-debian_defaults move them to /etc/amavis/conf.d/50-user file (20-debian_defaults  changing during an update).

Will cleanup it later.

Thanks again smile
