You have to have a mountpoint, using NFS or whatever is fine, I just
know NFS and nothing else, this is why I talked about it. What has the
best performances according to you ? OCFS maybe ? I'm just not fan of
network filesystems ...

But yes, the issue is that DTC uses a single folder for both web and
email (there is in fact a folder for each domain, which itself is in the
customer's folder). There is still an alternative though, you could use
Cyrus, if you like it. Cyrus is said to be very very fast (in fact, the
fastest option you could get). Then all would be somewhere in /var
(can't remember where Cyrus stores his email, I don't use it myself,
this was made by a contributor).
