I'm currently facing a problem of having used Netscape (now Mozilla) for years in Windows and now trying to find something I can regularly use in FreeBSD without losing Mozilla in Windows.
I was thinking of something involving IMAP and NFS. I already have
Courier-IMAP running, so I can use IMAP with Mozilla in Windows, and use
either IMAP or NFS-mount my Maildir in FreeBSD. That part is almost a
Moving my Mozilla mail store poses a number of technical questions and
problems. I have more than 32,000 emails saved up in 200 folders. Some
folders, like the one for the postfix-users list, can have 3000-4000
messages in them. For growth, we'll say 5000 messages.
How well would FreeBSD, Courier-IMAP, and postfix be able to handle a
directory with 5000 files in it? How about a directory with 200
subdirectories in it? I know that the parameters given to newfs can greatly
impact the suitablility of a filesystem for a given task. How do I get that
information from an existing filesystem? Dumpfs? Dumpfs spews HUGE amounts
of information, but I don't know enough to make sense of the output.
I really would like to stick with Maildirs and Courier-IMAP for this. I
know CIMAP well and is very fast and stable. However, if these demands are
just too much to expect, then can someone please tell me where I can find
Cyrus for Dummies?
