Last time it was an html message and when I looked at the graphs of my cpu usage, it was at about 90% during the mailing. It usually hovers around 15%.

Spam Checks = /opt/MailScanner/etc/rules/spam.rules

and in the rules file..

From:        10.1.                no
FromOrTo:    default                 yes

replace 10.1. with local machine ip-addresses

that way it will sign email/scan for viruses but won't spam scan
anything from the 10.1.x.y network
