for 35 000 to 50 000 messages that CPU Spec seems a bit too much in my
humble opinion. You can do well with only a single Xeon and put more
money into buying a very good RAID Controller.

I can only recommend the IBM X-Series

Most of the smaller Mailserver here run on xSeries 345 or 346 and we are
quite happy with that and the ServeRAID controllers.

Hope that helps
