You should really look into upgrading to atleast 8.9.3

Sounds stock so far.

Yes. An easy way to do it is to move the /var/mail directory
to another place, like maybe /usr/mail. Once you do this all
you have to do is creat a link from /var/mail to its new home.

man mv
man ln

You could also look into procmail and move the mailboxes into
users home directories.

Good luck.
