Good Morning,

I was wondering if anyone had suggestions for optimizing mimedefang so
that it doesn't run the load up while still able to process mail on a
shared server.  We run shared hosting Red Hat 7.3 servers with apache,
mysql, urchin, sendmail (8.12), and sometimes sun asp.  There are a
few clients that like to add mimedefang/clamav/spammassasian into the
mix.  In most cases the load high as a result.

Here are stats for one server yesterday.  This is a 24 hour period.

Inbound messages                  Outbound messages
  Total                 166042               Total            263555
  Average size (kB)      19.76       Sent             251168
  Messages/hour        6918.58      Deferred           4340
  Messages/min          115.31        Queued             1728
  Messages/sec            1.92          Other error        6319

mimedefang version 2.53
sendmail 8.12.10
clamav 0.87
SpamAssassin version 3.1.0 running on Perl version 5.6.1

Any suggestions at all to help get mimedefang to run more efficiently
in this environment are much appreciated.
