Question about Server Mode Mailboxes

We are willing to buy a 400E antispam, and i find that it includes an option called: Server Mode Mailboxes, with a number 400.
I would like to know, what does this mean?
And if it is a blocking option, if my mail server contains more than that number or not?
Thank you in advance,

Hi, such number should be taken literally.
400 server mailboxes is a hardcoded limit for the number of users  locally authenticated in your fortimail.
If you use external authentication (as LDAP, Radius,etc), in 5.x firmware version, you could manage more users than such hardcoded limit.
I have not tested yet this limits in server mode under 6.2.x firmwares.
In your shoes, if such limit concerns you , I'll test it with a demo VM or ask your local SE for it.
