I think so. I think MIN_SLAVES may even be a bit high; I'm sure 2 or
3 slaves could handle most of the traffic. We'll know better when I implement
statistics-gathering for 2.4. :-)

That particular timeout is the timeout to write a command from the multiplexor
to a slave, and is currently 10 seconds. It is not parameterized in my
sample startup scripts, but you can increase it with the "-c" option.
mimedefang-multiplexor ... -c 30 ...
If you increase that timeout, you should also increase BUSY_TIMEOUT to a
couple of minutes.
