Yeah the disk is relatively empty:
# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
/dev/da0s1a 7.7G 5.2G 1.9G 74% /
devfs 1.0K 1.0K 0B 100% /dev
ZPOOL_1 9.8G 1.1G 8.7G 11% /mail
The PST's seem to be stored on local hard disk too.
It seems that there was an issue with Send/Recieve settings that my
manager has made me aware of, basically turn off the Auto Send/Recieve
and it seems to marginally improve performance??
Well thanks to all and I guess we'll keep testing ;-)
Dovecot rocks, it's just a pitty that there is so much poorly
programmed corporate software out there!
