mbox type mail storage ? uh oh...
it brings system down when a user with XXX mails opens his mbox.

Maildir (courier.....) or cyrus mail storage is better.

dovecot uses indexes, BUT it does not support quota ( Maildir++...).

for Maildir and maildrop you need to add this to postfix/main.cf:

home_mailbox = Maildir/
local_destination_concurrency_limit = 1
mailbox_command = /usr/bin/maildrop

I know one.  MS Exchange. :]

And you know how well that works in case the db goes bananas.....
