Default why use /var ?

I used ubuntu breezy badger perfect setup, and followed it exactly. I have a RAID5 700GB disk setup with 14G mounted on / and 672G mounted on /var. My company is going to be using imap and storing their email on the server. According to this configuration it appears that the email users home directory is actually stored on / rather than /var. My questions is.. did i do this right? which mount is going to grow as the email adds up?

Is this not the path to the users email
root@bbmail3:/home/www/web3/user/web3_ryanhs/Maildir# ??

I would like to move forward and get this server live so if anyone has any input i would appreciate it greatly.

It seems you have installed ISPConfig. You should have used /var/www instead of /home/www - then your partitioning would have been perfect.
Now your data is growing on the / partition instead of on the /var partition...
