How many files are you talking? We use a mix of mdir and mbox for folders--
generally using mdir for Inbox, Sent Items and other volatile boxes and mbox
for archive folders-- and we're backing up in the neighborhood of 400,000
files (90GB total) without difficulty. Server is running 10.4.9 Universal on
a dual-processor G5 Xserve, data is stored on a Xserve RAID formatted
HFS+Journaled. Everything has been rock-solid.
