Exclamation Virtual Mail Server - ClamAV/Amavis-new

Hey there folks,

I've installed a mail server following your virtual mysql users tutorial for Ubuntu (i've done this so many times its pretty much memorised) and every time I find my servers memory usage being slaughtered by these two processes.

Code:
 1204 clamav    20   0  303m 173m  704 S    0 35.2   0:00.00 clamd
 1202 amavis    20   0  221m  90m 2404 S    0 18.4   0:00.46 amavisd-new
  954 amavis    20   0  219m  87m  568 S    0 17.7   0:01.87 amavisd-new
 1203 amavis    20   0  221m  87m  460 S    0 17.7   0:00.03 amavisd-new
Is there any way I can get the memory usage down, or remove them completely and use RBL lists or the like.

Any help would really be appreciated (got a new mail server needs to be live in a few hours ;p)

Thanks,
Lee.

Unfortunately clamd and amavisd are memory-hungry. You could try to reduce the amavisd child processes (e.g. from four to two), but I'm not sure if it helps.

I tried that but unfortunately it still hogs the server.

I've tried searching around for a tutorial that just uses spamassassin/rbl's instead but can't seem to find anything conclusive.

Any pointers?
