I knew I forgot to mention something. I've got max connections set to 500 and if I log into mysql and run a 'SHOW PROCESSLIST' I get anywhere from 40-60 records returned back. Is there another good way to measure the number of connections coming into mysql?

Check your my.cnf file for max_connections variable. The default value is 100 connections. You'll need the max_connections to cover your max smtp, imap, pop3 local concurrency and any other services that connect to the mysql database. Hope that helps, Ken Jones
