Re: SUGGESTON FOR: HIGH END MAIL SERVER



I think I might have read that wrong, dang, its sunday arvo afterall :)
if thats 600K msgs a day on average, no sweat the below setup will do it as well.

But it would help to know what software you will be running on it
mbox or maildir, sendmail or qmail (with vpopmail? if not.. use it)

let us say 20 per day per user so 20 x  3,00,000. Aproximate.

Oh only that many messages? OK you could easily get away with something like a HP DL380G4, use at least 2G ram, I'd use 2x36G 10K rpm scsi in raid 1 for OS and server software dir, then 1x72G 10K rpm scsi for /var/log and 1x36G 15K rpm scsi for /var/spool, and 2x300G 10K rpm scsi in raid 1 for /home (assuming your mail store is under home)
If you use Qmail your /var/spool becomes  /var/qmail.
If using MailScanner with spam assassin and anti virus, I'd suggest a ram drive as well, use in this case 4G ram, with 2G locked for ramdrive.

For 300K messages a day, the above will give you plenty of room to grow
as it will easily process far more than 300K.

How much mail do you envisage processing per day?
