One of my servers is a Athalon 1.2ghz w/ 512mb ram.
We push an average of 55k messages through a day, and do SpamAssassin,
File::Scan, and Clam Antivirus checks on them.

I'm not really sure what the top end would be for messages/day for this
setup, but 12-15k messages a day shouldn't be a problem for your hardware.
