Good day all,

I am exploring using ramfs for MS incoming queue.

This is a Redhat 7.3 system with 3GB RAM. I am using the following command:

$ mount -t -o maxsize=n none /var/spool/MailScanner/incoming ramfs

My question is, what is a decent size for n?

I know that is probably site-dependent, but an advice is appreciated. This
particular system handles an average of 20,000 messages per day.

Thank you
