I have a 2x50MHz sparc 20 as mail server, performing filtering with
bogofilter and spamassassin and keeping up with my few user's emails.
it will win no speed records, but it does not fall behind, even after
multiple day outages.

if I wasn't running spamassassin, I bet my slowest decstation (12.5MHz
2100) could handle my bogofilter load...
