Re: [Evolution] Is it possible to store foldes out of Home directory?

first of all: what kind of partition is that? is it a FAT or FAT32
partition just mounted to "/windows/D/"? i would not use a FAT partition
as file permissions aren't supported by a Micros~1 file system. so all
files are accessible and executable by everybody having access to the
system (ok, you can change the first issue in your file system mount
table at /etc/fstab).

I remeber when I did create the partition (using YAST) I choose FAT32
Here the line of my fstab:
"/dev/hda7            /windows/D           vfat       rw,users,uid=milani,gid=users       0 0"
Do you think I need to change it?

second, i'm going to quote a mail here from 2005-05-03 by peter smith:
"Where do I set/change the default location of the mail folders in
evolution.  Currently they are stored in folders beneath ".evolution", I
would like to change the location to a removable usb memory stick so
that I can take them from machine to machine."

...and not zed's answer:
"The best way would be to set-up a new account type, e.g. a maildir, and
point it to the usb location.
You can then use filters to make all pop mail go there, and the sent and
drafts folders can be overriden to point there too.
The only thing which can't move is outbox.
DONT use symlink."


Thanks for the reference to Peter Smith Thread,
I have setup a Local Maildir on the linux filesystem, and It works correctly,
then I have tryed to copy the content of the Maildir folder on my Windows partition, but I receive the following error message < impossible to create the file `/windows/D/posta_locale/Renato Macconi/cur/1123061647.6499_1.eris:2,S' : invalid argument  > for each message in the maildir.
Probably my filesystem is not able to manage 1123061647.6499_1.eris:2,S file name.

Is there a solution?

..No you ain't
what you own..
