Similar experiences here, have pushed serveral thousand mesasges per day
through a low spec machine, but again with more ram than 64M

Me too, you can reduce your ram usage by reducing the number of
MailScanner children (in MS.conf), turning off Bayes & autowhitelisting
in SA may help (although autowhitelisting should be off anyway).

Don't put the mailscanner work directory in tmpfs if you're short of ram
(almost certainly disk IO isn't your problem).
