    I have a courier-imap Server where I share all all mailinglists where
    I am subscribed... Curently I have 5,2 Millionen Messages in the ext3.

    I have already striped the messages with

    :0 fh
    | formail -f -I Received: -I Envelope-to: -I Delivered-To: -I Return-path: \
    -I X-Spam-Checker-Version: -I X-Spam-Status: -I X-Spam-Level:

    I have a mailsize of around 2,5 kBytes...

    So I habe used 'mkfs.ext3 -b 1024 -N 8000000 ... /dev/sda..'

    My question is, how many Inodes can I create on a ext3 filesystem ?

    Curently I am running a 3Ware Raid-5 Controller 75xx with 3 x 80 GByte.
