I haven't installed it on another drive however I did move my mail directory (a storage for sent and received email) into another partition/drive, without any issues.

You are welcome.
BTW. If you want to archive your emails I can recommend you free Mailstore Home
MailStore Home

It can be run as portable app. and from this app you can view, search through emails and also attachments.

It compress emails and attachment and in result disk is less fragmented.
I have over 6k emails but MailStore Home compress it into 240 files.
