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.
