The tmpdir option is available under base, mta, and store.archive. For these respective levels, it specifies a directory for storing respective temporary files. See also the dbtmpdir Message Store option, which controls the location of yet another set of temporary files.

tmpdir MTA option

Directory location MTA options: tmpdir (directory path)

The tmpdir MTA option (prior to MS 7.0, this MTA option was instead called imta_tmp and located in the MTA Tailor file, whereas tmpdir in legacy configuration is an MTA option file option.dat option) specifies the temporary file directory; it defaults to /tmp/ (trailing slash included).

On Linux, this option should instead be set to /dev/shm/.


The default value in this context is: /tmp/
