Hi all.

I was trying to shave down the 7+ minutes it takes for
Postfix/amavisd/SA to process a single message today and
wondered about the two biggest choke points I could identify.

*feeding a test message to spamassassin:
# su - vscan -c 'spamassassin -D &1' | timestamp

** versions:
FC4
SpamAssassin version 3.1.7
running on Perl version 5.8.3
amavisd-new-2.4.3

There is a 3 minute delay each at two points: processing the regex
rules and one called 'time_t'.

Any advice or links to push me in the right direction? Is it normal?

Thanks.
