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.
