One of the main problems I will have with setting up a zone for mail is that postfix wants to install aliases in /sbin. So, I cannot make a zone that sucks parts of the global zone's OS. It is a bit easier to create an empty zone and install all the packages I need in it. What I have in mind then, as my first test, is to put the entire mail zone in an external drive. For now that means to a 33GB external USB drive I have. I will probably set it up as a LOFS because that preserves the filesystem name space and to the local zone the path will start at the zone's root. Ok, I am not making sense yet. I will put my thoughts a bit clear later on.
