Subject: {Spam?} Postfix configuration/efficiency....

From: "Eric Sandquist" <esandquist at>

Periodically I see reference to setting up MailScanner  with a single
instance of Postfix, instead of the standard 2 Postfix install described
in the instructions.

Is there any advantage in doing this?  Memory savings? Server load? I
need to maximize the efficiency of this machine...  Are there any
instructions for this type of installation? or for converting from a
working standard installation?  Are there any drawbacks to this type of

Currently, we are running Dual PIII 500, 512Megs Ram...   I've worked
very hard to get the server load down to about 4....  It has been as
high as 10...

We are processing about 40,000 mails per day....

I realize that the best soution is a more powerful machine than this,
but the client company won't do it (until this one dies)....
