<para>
For large or multi-domain installations, we suggest moving <filename>/var/lib/imap/</filename> and <filename>/var/spool/imap/</filename> to <filename>/srv/imap/[<replaceable>$domain</replaceable>/]config/</filename> and <filename>/srv/imap/[<replaceable>$domain</replaceable>/]default/</filename> respectively. In allowing <filename>/srv/imap/</filename> to be one separate partition, backup using LVM snapshots is easier. Note that <replaceable>$domain</replaceable> in the aforementioned path is optional, and should only be used when multiple, but separate, isolated IMAP servers are to be started.

+ When partitions are mounted under the aforementioned directories, they do not necessarily have the correct filesystem permissions any longer. The following is a list of default permissions.
