The biggest factor I'm aware of is I/O.
The problem I've seen with having a lot of PO's in a domain is running out of connections. You can boost the connections, but then you have to make sure you have enough tcp/ip sockets available. It's even worse for domains running on Windows.
I've started to see problems with default settings when you start getting into the mid to high 30's.
Can't move a PO. Have to create a new one and move the users.

Is there any guideline as to how many post offices you should have per domain?  I am talking about GroupWise 8, latest version and SLES 11 for the OS it is running on.
Also, there is no way to move a post office (with users in it) from one domain to another, is here?
