[Mailman-Users] Trying to get attachments to another partition

Hello everyone,

Using a soft link as a substitute for the
/var/lib/mailman/archives/private/my_list_name/attachments directory,
I have tried to get my mailman installation to start putting
attachments on another partition.  This has not worked--I always get a
"permission denied" error in the log.  However, the link is accessible
and the directory it points to is owned by the proper user.

Of course the overall problem is that /var is too small for the number
of lists now running on this server, but I thought that if I
redirected the attachments I could buy more time to get the storage.
I cannot figure out why this is not working.

Thanks for your help,
