    I was wondering how many of you guys running Postfix on Arch use Amavisd-new? The reason I ask is because I followed this guide to set up my mail server on Arch & noticed the 'spamd' daemon utilizes a lot of memory (even with use child process running). I know on my old Postfix server running on CentOS, Amavisd-new was able to use Spamassasin modules with out having the daemon 'spamd' running:

    The quote above is from the CentOS Wiki page. Does anyone know if this is unique to CentOS or would this also be the same scenario if I ran Amavisd-new on Arch Linux?

    I think this is valid for Arch and any other distribution as well.

    Does anyone know a guide that shows how to integrate Amavisd-new into Postfix on Arch Linux? I see many guides for CentOS & Debian but nothing for Arch. :(

    Anyone have any info and or recommendations?

    I remember in CentOS that Amavis used a single config file in '/etc/amavisd.conf.

    In Debian the config files were split into several files:


    How does this work in Arch? One single config file or multiple?

    I guess it's just one big configuration file. AFAIK, only Debian and Ubuntu split it up that way.
