I used to have the maildirs on ReiserFS and never had a problem with it,
but given the current state of that FS and that I weren't really
comfortable with it, I'll give XFS a try for the maildir array and the 
postfix queue partition. After formating, I got 4.6 Tb of usable space, 
which makes me happy, and also the dynamic inode allocation.


P.S. I have UPS and generator.
