I think it´s half off topic, but...

In a medium business office (~1k users), I have 2 servers running Linux: 1 
gateway (P4 ~ unused) and 1 mail server (P3 very used) running pop 
(dovecot), apache (for webmail), sendmail with DCC, Pyzor, Razor, SA and 

The P3 CPU is becoming red in monitoring. They want to include samba file 
share in P3 server and I think it will not work as they want.

I think I can use P4 to make e-mail tests (MS and SA) e after that, this 
server relays the "low score" e-mail to P3 and make it´s life easier :)

Anyone has this kind of solution implemented or have another ideia to solve 

Thks in advance,
