We have people who are asking for unreasonable amounts of e-mail
space. I'd like to estimate a configuration that would supply that
amount of space, just to see what it might cost, and how it could
Let's say we have 3000 employees, and want to give them 1 GB each.
That's 3 TB of space. What are people using for that amount of IMAP
storage, with reasonable performance? How do you provide backup and
restore capability for it? Would a storage system that provides
on-line snapshots simplify the backup requirements?
