It depends totally on how many users you will have and how much mail they are receiving and keeping in their inboxes. I have never created a separate file system for /var/mail on any server. But, I have moved it in to my large file system where home directories are made - which has usually been '/home' and make a symlink to it so it can grow fairly freely and can also easily have user quotas put on it - actually on total usage per user and still just have quotas turned on in one filesystem. ////jerry > > TIA for any related tips! > > Zheyu > _______________________________________________ > firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
