Still looking for my perfect distro

    I'm a Mandriva user for years. ISPConfig didn't work well with Mandriva so I tried other distro's. So far Debian seemed to be the best choice but now I ran into a new issue.

    I transfered a mailserver. One user needed 128MB storage space on the Mandriva server which uses the mbox format. That same user needs 535MB disk space on the Debian system with Mairdir. What a difference. :confused:

    Sorry for this post. I made this mistake before.

    These are the real numbers:
    # du -sh /var/spool/mail/user /home/user/Mail/
    128M /var/spool/mail/user
    316M /home/user/Mail/

    444 MB

    # du -sh /var/spool/mail/vs11_user /var/www/web1/user/vs11_user/Maildir/
    0 /var/spool/mail/vs11_user
    535M /var/www/web1/user/vs11_user/Maildir/

    535 MB

    Diference is simple becasuse mailboxes use diferent format...maildir and mailbox isnt same have own hierarchy and diferent storage using mandriva and maildir type and no problem.
