Custom path for user repository

User's Repository is the location where emails for every user is stored in Xeams. By default, this location is $INSTALL_DIR\UserRepository. As users get more emails to their account, you may need additional disk space.

The following section lays down the steps required to move this repository:
  • Create a file called server.properties in the $XEAMSINSTALLDIR/config folder. It is quite possible that this file already exist on your system.
  • Open the file in any text editor, such as Notepad on Windows or VI on Linux/UNIX.
  • Add the following lines in the file:
    user.repository.folder=F:\\XeamsUserRepository
    VERY IMPORTANT: If you are running Xeams on Windows, you should use a slash (/) rather than a back-slash (\) to separate the folders. This is contrary to the convention in Windows but was done by design to stay consistent across other operating systems.
  • Move the contents of older folders to the new location. Failure to move the files will result in "File Not Found" errors.
  • Restart the server

I would like to add that server.properties file does not exist by default. You have to create it. Do not confuse with service.properties.
