What you want is the Courier-IMAP mail server which uses the Maildir
format to store its messages, running on ReiserFS.
Maildir is a one file per message storage format for more reliability
and faster message finding because of ReiserFS which uses very fast
B+-type tree searching of filenames.
See http://www.inter7.com for more information.
(This is what I use, and I have hundreds of thousands of E-mails in IMAP
format, some of my clients, using the same servers have gigabytes of
E-mails stored this way and find it to be faster than local storage).
