How many mailboxes could one expect on a system with the following specs
Receiving messages via LMTP and only supporting pop for retrieving email.
front-end systems would be running exim, proxypop3d, apache and DNS
back-end systems would only have cyrus. There would be a third system
to provide every thing else..
How would this scale.. how many front-ends to back-end machines.. is
there a rule of thumb.
I would guess every user would think there mail was important and hit
the pop server every minute.
Pentium 4 2.4GHz
No Harddrive drive (remote boot)
Localfile system in ramdisk..
1 gig memory or more..
Dual NICs. (one inside private and one outside)
Backend Pentium 4 2.4GHz
1 gig memory
File systems from frontend systems.
murder (I think I need one of these right?)
