I appreciate the suggestion, but I already limit to 20MB. I probably
could drop that to 10, but that would probably cause whining from the
staff; also, since two simultaneous 6MB mails already makes the machine
choke, I doubt if it would have much of an impact.
These are the settings I'm using at the moment. No doubt they can be
improved upon, though.
Ah well, I'll probably just talk to my boss about ordering a couple of
new servers. A pizza box with a couple of cores and a few gigs of memory
can be had for peanuts these days after all, and the machines that are
currently in use are ancient.
