Actually, I already do =)

Only problem is when you want to reboot the box.  And you have to keep a
close eye on free RAM since if someone were to hose the box with email
it could theoretically be a problem.  It has not even come close so far,
but still.

 From what I read here, I might as well put it back on disk since
consensus seems to be that the allocation table is modified and no
actual copying of files occurs.  I will look for other methods to make
things more efficient.

Thanks for the info,

Chris Conn
