  Thanks for the suggestion.  It did alleviate the problem to some
  degree.  I've got MailScanner set to spawn 10 child processes, each
  scanning a max of 30 messages.  Switching to sophos did increase
  mail scanning speed, but within ~1 hr the inbound queue had just
  about max'd out and the load on the system had peaked.

  I downgraded to 4.13 (switched the sym link) and the entire inbound
  queue was scanned within 20 min, while still accepting new messages
  for the queue.

  Any other suggestions?
