This is ok on workstations but it's hard to manage the load on a multiuser system, since procmail is effectively a final delivery. There's also a port for MailScanner, which operates prior to final delivery on mail spools. It can integrate SpamAssassin and the virus scanner(s) of your choice; as a plus, the load generated is far more predictable. -- jan grant, ILRT, University of Bristol. http://www.ilrt.bris.ac.uk/ Tel +44(0)117 9287088 Fax +44 (0)117 9287112 http://ioctl.org/jan/ Rereleasing dolphins into the wild since 1998. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
