As Glenn stated..Postfix can do it, sendmail can do it as well (google 
for it).

Res, there is something fundamentally wrong in your setup if mails take 
such a long time to get delivered.. You are NOT the only mail setup with 
multi-million mails getting delivered on a daily basis.

You probably are expecting way too much from your hardware.. content 
filtering IS and WILL be a resource hungry function.. have you 
considered adding more resources to your setup???

SA works really well for most (if not all) of us. Time for the pot to 
stop calling the kettle black (or whatever the phrase may be).
