May I ask can SmarterMail run inside a virtualization guest, and SmarterMail connects to a remote file system via NFS or Samba (i.e. the user mail data stored on Linux server).
The reason is -
I have little experience on Windows Server, and have limited knowledge to setup a reliable storage in Windows.
I personally believe RAID-1 on 2 drive (e.g. 2 x 2TB) is not so reliable. (when a drive failed, the other one may have hidden problem during recovery).
It seems I cannot build a 3 x 2TB RAID-1 in Windows. I can do the same in Linux mdadm easily.
So, may you share your experience to run SmarterMail with remote file system?
I am planning to build an entry server (Intel Xeon E3 v5 CPU, 32GB RAM) to run for around 500 - 1000 mailboxes.
Thank you very much for your experience sharing.
