If you've got 100 MB mailboxes, use IMAP instead of POP3.
Sure - if I can convince the around 40.000 users to do so (hint: ISP).
But if they use POP3, the users would download the messages to their
machines. Surely you don't have 40,000 users with 100MB mailboxes stored
on the mailserver?
No, luckily not. But we have a lot of users with 10-20 MB, quite a lot with
50-100, and some hundred with 100+ MB. Many of our users leave their mail on
the server - and we cannot (and will not) avoid it.
