Currently running at .10, .22, .12... No MailScanner

RAM 64Meg
Processor Celeron-600mhz
Sendmail 8.11.7

Based on what I just saw when checking memory usage(95% physical in use)....
I may need to request a hardware upgrade....  I've been putting it off, but
it looks to be needed now... especially if I intend to do any kind of mail
