Default /etc/passwd no of users

Hi,

Can I configure around 900 of users against /etc/passwd, /etc/shadow files, in terms of performance?
This is for an email server.
Or do I must use openLDAP?

Thanks

Ferradeira

Yes, but the authentication is not the performance bottleneck. Performance killers are spam and virus scanners, so you should keep an eye on them.

Ok, thanks, I understand.
Do you know a script to export a openLDAP password database, MD5 encryptation, to a /etc/passwd, /etc/shadow ?
