Hi everyone,

There is a good document on Python's website that you can look at here:

While relates to Mailman, I found it useful !!!

I cut down on load spikes by denying mail at the MTA level.
Also, mounting /var/spool/MailScanner/incoming into RAM.
Finally, spreading the load on multiple scsi disks ---> made the world of
difference for my site. Specifically, spreading spool and syslog logs on
different physical fast scsi drives.
