Don't wish to be querulous, but on my Postfix snapshot notebook running
RH RHEL3, I can read my morning mail (+/- 200, MUA Evolution 1.4.5)
after having kicked out 15% spam and virus after about 5 minutes.

Apart from which, this is coming in from my ISP over a 56k2 modem.


I wish that mailing-list people would stop CC'ing me.
Chances (95%) are that if they do, the CC will never
make it, anyway.
