    When someone spam to my servers (like 2000 emails), the cpu level is too high, and the machine stop response all services..

    Anyone know how to limit the simultaneous amavisd can run in the machine? or how much sendmail daemons? or any solution to this?

    Thanks

    krp.

      sendmail can be configured for a load limit.

      postfix can be configured to limit the number of processes.
