Thanks a lot Jeremy! I didn't know about directory hashing! Now I understand it a bit :) By the way, I'm using ext2 and I'm sure I won't use more than 600 files in a directory. I know I can have problems, but I'll try not hashing :) Do you know the hashing limit of ext2? (But this is not the mainly question yet and I know this is not part of you, but who knows you can tell me :) ) So, I recompile vpopmail with the --disable-users-big-dir flag and I think that for new domains it will work out nice. But for my existing domains, it doesn't work yet. I thinks there's something related to .dir-control file. I realize that the first line from its must be the number of files (folders) of a domain. The rest I can't figure out! Is there something related to .dir-control file? If so, can you explain me that file line per line? Or is there another solution to making my old domains work with that flag now?
Anyway, thanks a lot!
