    How many active users can cpanel host for webmail access using squirrelmail on say a dual 3ghz P4 w/2gb ram and a 10k raid5 array? What kind of hardware configuration would you recommend to maximize the number of webmail users for a single domain hosted on cpanel? These users might check their mail once or twice a day.

    For a single domain you'd be better not paying for cPanel and installing the opensource software yourself for free!

    10,000 users, twice a day, thats 20,000 requests a day. A server of that spec should cover that fine i would presume.

    well, i have 26.000 users on a tualatin 1.13 Ghz, 1 gb ram and 2 x 160 Gb hdd (PATA)

    but i'm not using cpanel, it's slackware + qmail +courier + squirrel.

    works perfect, load average 0.5-0.8, only during backup hours it goes to 1.5-2
