comment Serve emails from a folder structure using dovecot
Thanks, but that's exactly the kind of thing I'm trying to avoid...

comment How can I define a mime type in nginx for tar.bz2 or tar.gz files?
@CMCDragonkai not really, I just used application/x-bzip2 bz2; and application/x-gzip gz;

Hmm, I haven't tried it yet, and seems convoluted, but I guess it could work.

I don't have that note in /etc/mime.types, but I can see some logic in it. So that means *.tar.gz & co should probably be identified as application/x-tar. Still, that leaves 2 questions: 1. How to define the mime type in nginx? (Not all gz's are tars) and 2. What's the mime type of foo.gz? Is it necessary to extract the file to determine it?

That's why I'm trying to add them. But apparently it doesn't support dotted extensions.

comment What file system is better for a Linux mail server?
I've seen lots of contradicting opinions about XFS, ranging from "you WILL DEFINITELY LOSE DATA, and it's only good for large files" to "it's rock solid and optimized for many small files". I don't really know what to believe. Testing is desirable indeed, but it can take a lot of time to do it well.

Opening a big folder in the email client takes a while, and rsync (for backing up maildirs to another machine) also takes its time checking which files are changed. It seems that I'm having some openvpn speed issues too. What do you recommend for testing the filesystem performance?

comment How to prioritize openvpn traffic?
Note: the situation is about the same with a simple pfifo_fast or sfq (just the imaps connection uses almost all the available bandwidth), could it be an openvpn problem?

A valid choice, but it would be nice to find out more about the benefits in this scenario.

I have to admit.. I haven't done any proper testing. Do you think it's likely not the filesystem?

comment Best way to grow Linux software RAID 1 to RAID 10
I'm also looking for a good way to do this, and I think the method described in the question is the best I found so far. Mark Turner's answer doesn't help because it creates a 2-device array that can't be reshaped to 4 devices (the other 2 can only be added as spares). And Suresh Kumar's answer is the same as described in the question, except it won't work exactly like that; the missing devices have to be the 2nd and 4th, not the 3rd and 4th. About the steps in the question: I think step 5 has full redundancy, and step 6 has redundancy for half the data. I actually see the steps were renumbere
