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! You're great! :)
