Yesterday I got a problem with my mailscanner server. The messages stopped being processed and the mailscanner would crash attempting to process the messages.
Some troubleshooting later and: The problem was with the file per directory limit = 32000 of the ext3.
I'm going to upgrade to ext4.

Any ideias? Change the quarantine function to create directories per hour also?
