for outgoing (mail from local user) and milter in sendmail handle incoming mail 

Best  regards,

So if I'm understanding you correctly.. your calling spamc from a sendmail
milter *and* .procmailrc. That's pretty redundant and would definately slow
you down. Choose one based on your needs.

Extra rules can slow you down regardless of syntax, but most computers
created this decade can handle RulesDuJour fine. Personally I think your
main problem is that your effectively spam checking every message twice. The
spamassassin queues most likely get filled followed by sendmail having to
wait and queue up the slack.
