My Qmailrocks installation on Debian crashed the other day.
Being not extreemly happy with it anyway, I looked for an alternative and found Mail::Toaster, which I'd like to try.

I've never used FreeBSD.

I'm looking for a more specific recomendation on how to partition the hard drive for my dedicated email server.

Stability and webmail are my primary concernes.
There is a 20Gig hard drive in the i386 system I'm using.
It will be serving email for less than 100 users.

Any help you can provide would be appreciated.


On a 20GB drive, I'd lay it out as follows:

/     1  GB
swap  2  GB
/usr  12 GB
/var  4  GB
