How big a machine must you have to run MailScanner on? I unfortunately
use a '486 for my inside local area mail host.  It works fine for just
tossing and smart hosting mail but when I ran Spam Assassin on it, it
went down on its knees and took over a minute to process one e-mail!
It owuld have never kept up at that rate:).
