Although I still maintain that messages going to eBay Billpoint buyers
are not *useful* (just kidding!), I would suggest to go for a server farm
for your task.  Get half a dozen 1U boxes; they need not be very powerful
CPU-wise but they *must* have fast modern LVD hard drives.  Choose an OS/
filesystem with fast directory operations, develop a way to distribute
the load and off you go.

BTW, we where evaluating the idea of using solid state disks, not for mail
but for Oracle database (rollback segments and redo logs), and did not find
any viable solution.  That was a year or two ago.
