We used latest ubuntu version ie. 2.6.18. We will upgrade it to 2.6.25
version and try to repair. Hopefully it will help, you know, customers
are bit angry when it comes to losing all their mails :-).

Ok, we will try to use 2.6.25 version and I will report result
afterwards. Is there something you are particulary interested if it
crashes again more then full log of activity?
I will try to use xfs_repair -n as first step and if it finishes, then
use it for real. Any other suggestions?
