/var/spool/mail Sendmail problem..

I am currently using redhat 7.1 with Sendmail. I am using a Webmail ( Yahoo like ) to read mails.

All incoming mails is stored in /var/spool/mail.

I've got a problem due to space problem in /var which has only 200mb. And i allocated 10GB /home space for the webmail only to find out the INBOX is in /var/spool/mail.

How do i change the incoming mails from /var/spool/mail to /home ??
