The number of email accounts is a false indicator.  How many messages do
you receive each day?  What are your mesgs/sec statistics under normal
load?  How active is the webmail application?

Could you be more specific about the disk/raid setup?

I'm asking all these questions because I'm going to be replacing a mail
server soon with 6000+ accounts receiving about 80K mesgs per day.  I'm
curious to hear about other setups and they loads they can sustain.
