I can wait ... I wont begin on the server until tuesday ... So no 
problems there.

Can't wait to get my hands dirty converting the old amavisd-new setup 
... some other dude had setup it up, and its a real pain to figure out ...

Btw, read on a page on the internet where a person said that MS did not 
use the resources very good cause its spawning a new process for every 
mail and afterwards closing it. amavisd-new also did that in the start 
but changed over to daemon style ... so its not spawning a new proces 
every time ...
Is there something about this, or did the guy just not like MS ?
and if there are something about it ... will MS be changed to spawn 
daemons ?
what are the pros/cons agints it ?
