I understand this, but what the real question is, is do you have multiple physical networking lines going into the computer?

If, on the other hand, you mean can you have multiple domains on one computer that has a *single* connection network connection, then yes. hMailServer handles such things very nicely, it is one of the basic feature of hMailServer and is decently easy to figure out when you attempt it.

If you based it off of the first three characters wouldn't that be 4096 folders? That's quite a lot if you ask me and a bit of overkill as even if you had 100,000 meesages it would be ~25 messages per directory.
