I'm assuming you are using Messaging server as mail server.

The message store directory can be backed up as a Amanda DLE (as a filesystem
directory). It can contain lot of small files (all mails are stored as files. So you want
want to split the message store directory into multiple DLEs.

The mailbox configuration database is BDB. You may want to take a dump of the
database as part of pre-backup script (instead of backing database directly).
The pre-backup script functionality is available in 2.6.1alpha.
