Dear DovecotORG,

                In my organization, we are about to implement Qmail Server.

*  The number of current users will be 800, in future it may increase upto

*  The number of concurrent users will be 300.


I am the engineer to deploy the Qmail in Linux server. I need to tell the
storage team on the IOPs requirement.

I requested 8TB usable space for the mail storage (can scale up in future).


Kindly provide your suggestion on this.


Thanks & Regards,



Systems Engineer,
