My requirements just changed and I now have to come up with an integrated
solution. What I need is one RT instance with 25 (and growing) customers
and three queues each. Each customer will have a number of users (say 20).

(We are implementing the ITIL framework[1] and thus need the three queues
for Incidents, Problems and RFCs.)

Does anyone have experiences with the scalability of RT when it comes to
this amount of queues/users (it could well be that there are 300 queues
a year or two from now).

If anyone has used similar setups and would like to share ideas/solutions
please let me know (I would also share the ITIL experiences I made so
far if there is interest.)

Thanks and sorry for going a bit off-topic.
