Just to elaborate on that - I figure 50MB per child (mine currently vary from 12 - 40), so 25 children would require at least a gig. Honestly, mine is set to 32, and I only have 1 gb - but it's a dedicated server, and it was a pain to tweak it to where it is now. I definitely need more Ram. > I'd increase the amount of ram (we run 4 gig on all our SA servers) and > see if it would be possible to get a separate machine to just run spamd on. > > Regards, > > Rick >
