dynamic inode under ext3



A hardware vendor shipped us a product installed with RedHat 8.0 with all
file systems created as ext3.  This system has about 800 GB of space which
we use for buffering email files (in RFC format).  Several weeks into the
project and with millions of emails stored, we started seeing "out of inode"
(something like that) error messages in the /var/log/messages.  Are inodes
fixed on ext3 or does this depend on how the file system is created?

Boxes that we build ourselves we normally convert the large filesystems into
ReiserFS which doesn't have the same problem because inodes are dynamically
created.

Just curious.
