Michael:

From <http://www.debian.org/mirror/>
You can mirror the Debian archive in part or as a whole — check the mirror 
size [1]. See the pages on setting up a mirror[2] of the Debian archive for 
more information on methods of mirroring, how to do partial mirroring, when 
to mirror and more.

And: I don't know why you're building a mirror, but if you're only use it in 
your organisation internally, it's very likely that you don't need to 
mirror all of the more exotic architectures (mips{el}, arm, m68k, 
s390, ...), so you could cut down on diskspace and bandwidth quite a bit.

debian-ww:
<http://www.debian.org/mirror/size> Seems to be outdated, if Michael was 
building his mirror correctly and his disk was full after 170G - the mirror 
size on the web page is given as 120G.  Marc Haber posted the link 
<http://lists.debian.org/debian-mirrors-announce/2006/02/msg00000.html>  
which states 170G as mirror size.

The conundrum is not in which email, but in how many users. The number of
users would be inversely proportional to the question of, 'which email', and
could then likely be regurgitated as, 'what email', or so to speak. Since
the question of how many users bring us to the inevitable query of the email
itself, you have to start counting each user twice, and sometimes thrice in
order to come to a more accurate conclusion about what email.
