Without knowing why the filter is timing out, it's impossible to make
recommendations.  For example, if you have high DNS latencies, you can
run out of slaves on a machine with very low CPU utilization.

If you don't feel you can diagnose what's causing the timeouts, we
*do* sell MIMEDefang support contracts. :-)
