15000 messages is completely unrealistic for 12000 users unless this mailserver has no way to receive Internet mail. Try a number more along the lines of 1.2 million messages a day, most of which are spam that you will delete before they get to the users mailbox. > The machine should run Postfix, courrier-imap and a web mail (probably > squirel), Apache 2, spamassassin, clamav, greylist Totally inappropriate and will not work. Your going to be lucky to get it to run with just the stuff that HAS to be on it. That is, the MTA itself and the anti-spam scanning and the POP/IMAP server. Putting webmail on it will drown it. You will need a second box for that. Most likely you really need a cluster of at least 4 servers here. 2 input filters that spam scan and virus scan and just send the filtered mail to the 3rd server which does pop/imap and outbound mail, and a 4th that just does webmail. If your looking at squirrel it's pretty clear to me that you do not have experience with large busy mailservers. Not that squirrel and postfix and courier couldn't do it - rather that they are chosen by inexperienced people because they are perceived to be easy to use. If that is the case your in over your head. Get some help before you botch it.
