We have run Listserv on VMware's ESX for testing and evaluation purposes
and currently run the commercial release of Sendmail on Xen as our
internal smtp smart host for our hosted servers. The best performance
is having the most active directories (Listserv's home directory, spool
and archives as well as Sendmail's /var/spool/mqueue, maillog) on
storage other than local....I/O waits will improve.
