running freebsd 4.8 on a celeron 600/512MB ram with sophossavi/clamav/sa
(with bayes and a whole bunch of extra rules and
RBL's)/MailWatch/Mysql/Apache and exim as the MTA.

I'm  also running softupdates on all the filesytems (a single IDE hard
disk). Using a ram disk (ie a linux style tmpfs) instead of a
softupdate-ed file system made negligable performance improvements (1-2%).

I get around 1200 messages an hour out of the thing, when its going full

I average around 9000 messages a day no problems.

BTW > 80% of my traffic is spam/viruses.
