    Default [SOLVED] zimbra dont use Maildir???


    Im starting with zimbra, and is great. but i have a little question. A long time Ago, i has problems in an email server, because the mbox file size was very high (2GB and more). The solution was convert the mbox to maildir.

    I search in the zimbra forums and google, and i cant found information about to use zimbra with maildir format. So, what mailbox format use zimbra?

    If use mailbox, how can i prevent problems with bigger mailboxes?

    Thanks in advance

    There are no problems with larger mailboxes, my current mailbox is over 12GB.

    zimbra doesn't use any traditional mailstore like mbox or maildir. it uses a propietary file-per-message in a hashed-like dir hierarchy so is much more efficient than either. mailbox size will not be a problem.
