okay.. > My questions is whether or not the Postfix+MySQL+TeaPOP system is secure > and fast enough to put on a medium to high traffic production server > with approx. 3500 accounts. should be without any problem.. 3500 accounts is not a lot of mail, really, and is really not considered a "high traffic" email server. When you get over 20-30 emails/sec.. 1200-1800 / minute ... or over 100,000 emails an hour, that is getting to be a high traffic server <g> postfix/mysql no problem handling what you need. I am not familiar with TeaPOP, and in looking at their site, they have been out for a few years, and I have not come across any prior security history problems with them, that I have heard, unlike Qpopper, which has a very real history of security issues.. I would say, give it a go... on high volume servers, the focal area of concern is disk I/O, as this will be your slowest area. -- Gary _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
