I would like to upgrade the servers that are running MailScanner.
What is the best approach on storage? It will be virtual machines (which i
guess is what a lot of people are doing now), how to approach the storage
issue, what would be the best approach / design? What size for the
MailScanner root partition etc. ?
I have to keep verbatim copies of anything that goes in or out of the mail
servers, i keep the qf/df pairs from sendmail.
I read some people seeing their quarantine getting filled with 7 Gb of
virii just in one day, what would be recommended storage sizes and how to
deal with quarantine / archive folders? If it wise or recommended to
mount an external volume at /var/spool/MailScanner/quarantine and
/var/spool/MailScanner/archived or is there a better way ?
If I have several MailScanner servers, is it OK to keep all spam/archived
copies in one and the same mount ?
Will CentOS 7 work flawlessly? Anyone using standard cloud images?
Thanks for any tips / suggestions :>)
