Most important thing, IMHO, is uptime. If you use the Maildir mailbox format you can put it on a solid NFS server like a NetApp and front it with any number of MTAs and IMAP servers. Maildir is NFS-safe. If a (used) netApp is too expensive for you, the same approach still keeps your complicated services off your most critical file server. I used qmail-ldap (qmail with LDAP for virtualization) and a handfull of 1U SMTP/IMAP/POP/Squirrelmail servers. Each server had a local read-only replica of the LDAP data sync'd from the LDAP master. Zero downtime in well over a year, even with taking individual boxes down (one at a time) for upgrades and such. You could also look at Vpopmail virtualization for qmail. I've not tried to scale that across multiple boxes so I don't know how you'd replicate the account info. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
