hehe dont think that would work as its a quite heavily used email server :)
if i can get the software people to agree, i could just make 12 email
guests.. separating the domains and accounts would be a bit of a problem but
thats one way to do it.. problem is the licensing. its commercial software
licensed for one machine. i know the ceo fairly well from dealing with him
directly with bug fixes and feature implementations so maybe i can convince
him im not trying to stiff him and get a multiple machine license for this if
i explain the 16 ip limitation. the other problem ill run into is there will
be 12x the resource usage of just one.. not good.. maybe ill leave it as a
separate machine for now.
so then just for clarity, using the current vserver software (2.1.0-r4) with
up to 16 ip addys does not give any performance hits at all compared to 1 but
beyond that is when it gets nasty.
