    I do not know the ispconfig version as the server is down. It has been crashing for the last few days with "out of memory" (I assume processor memory) in the server log.

    It starts ok for a while 1-2 hours.

    This has all happened since using as an email server.

    I have recently clicked anitivirus and anti spam.

    I will post the version when I get it up again.

    To keep the server up I have removed anti-smap and anti-virus from the email accounts

    Email Domains


    I have about 4 domains and upto 12 emails on each. I have just been through them all and taken off spam and virus detection.

    The disc space is small, but clamscan is runninga lot of the time.

    I have found that I have been running imapsync jobs on a cron.

    Things got a lot better when I removed the cron jobs.
