    Please don't do it.
    File based email is great. It eliminates the problem of a complete obscure access to email like Exchange is. One advantage of Mdaemon is that the upgrade process is simple because you don't have to upgrade the BD and data in the BD. Also, if you have a problem on some files you are invalidating the all database. Moreover, I can have have email accounts on separate disks and segregate between SSD and HDD for storage. Try to do that with a DB!
    And best of all, for auditing proposes, you can run scripts much more easily. Otherwise you'll starting incurring a 10x increase in developing software to work against a DB and a DB datamodel.

    Hello Michael,

    Thank you for sharing your idea with us. Without knowing more about your setup I can’t say for sure but you may be able to improve performance by altering your configurations and/or optimizing the hardware that MDaemon uses. MDaemon is very I/O intensive but solid state drives are usually only necessary in very large installations. We have some recommended hardware specifications available by user size at http://www.altn.com/Products/MDaemon-Email-Server-Windows/System-Requirements/. Alternatively our technical support team would be happy to try to help optimize your server. If you are interested you can find all of our support options at http://www.altn.com/Support/. With all of that being said, thank you for your suggestion to optimize the message processing by making better use of the available RAM. We will consider this for future versions of MDaemon.

    I completely second Micheal. For a long time I moved for Ramdisk.
    If you have statistics enable then Mdaemon becomes unusable. I'm running in ESXi 5.1 in a brand HP 380 Gen 8, dual socket, 192GB. The VM itself has 4 cores to it.
    The problem with the RamDisk drive is that is from a small company and across reboots it may require manual startup.
    By the way, we have SSD for 2 years now also.
