Question Ideas for partitioning a mail server?


Does anyone have a good partition scheme for a postfix mailserver? I'm also planning on running open-xchange on this, and I have 300Gb to play with so any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Homer

most data will most likely be stored in /var so you will need most space available there.
i guess /var/spool will hold open-xchange user files.

Though the link I am providing is not strictly for partitioning for mail servers, it could be useful. The post is called Effective partitioning - the how and why of it and you can access it at the following link:
