Daniel, I already got myself an account when I noticed Evolt is growing
popular and I should get one while they last. However, I just realized
university (of Toronto) offers email for life.
A couple of questions, however. What are the uptimes and arrangements
backup servers. I do not know much about mail management, so I just need
you to tell me that all my mail will come through over the next couple
of years I am with evolt.
By the way, I am currently applying for a Univ. of Toronto for life

<tip type="RAID Arrays">
In general, RAID5 disk arrays should only be used on
machines/applications/mount points that are *not* disk I/O intensive.

The things that make RAID5 attractive - redundancy, parity, etc - from a
reliability standpoint make it a nightmare when looked at from a
performance standpoint.

If you have a machine that requires heavy disk I/O (mailservers,
fileservers, etc) a RAID0(striping) or RAID0+1(mirroring) is your best
bet. For machines where reliability is key and there isn't a lot of
filesystem activity(webservers, DB servers, etc) because data is stored
in RAM(hopefully) RAID5 is your friend. :)
