Why are you running full mail services on your web servers? I was logged onto egon the other day and noticed I had mail waiting. Of course, this is not my mail server – it was just bounced and underlieverable mail from my web forms. And when I looked through the mail spool on the system, I noticed a lot of mail for other users – with some mailboxes taking up a few MB of space.
Just wondering how much diskspace you could save by either turning mail on these machines off – or even better; putting a forward file in each directory to forward mail to the correct mail machine for that user. That way, I wouldn’t miss any of my local error messages on that machine, and it would save you some disk space.
Of course, if people configured their form-to-mail scripts correctly, you wouldn’t have this problem. But that’s another story…
Just my 2 cents…
