    Default Disabling outbound email scanning

    I'm currently sending out a mailshot and the Zimbra server is heavily loaded with multiple amavisd processes - I presume its scanning emails as they go out (or bouncing back I guess, quite a few will be).

    Anyway, is there a quick and easy way to disable scanning of emails as they go out - I really don't see the point, as far as I'm concerned, the responsibility for email scanning should be the recipient's.

    Steve.

    lol, I have the same issue again, did a google search and found my old thread.

    Is there an answer to this as its bringing the mailserver to its knees each time I sent a mailshot out.

    This is an example of the 'top' output and using atop I can see the that box is really disk bound rather than CPU bound, although its a pretty close thing.

    Code:
    top - 06:19:14 up 28 days,  8:40,  1 user,  load average: 7.72, 9.11, 9.63
    Tasks: 253 total,   1 running, 252 sleeping,   0 stopped,   0 zombie

    There will be a reasonably high level of bounces, so this will increase the load of course - these should drop over time when the code in the mail system removes them from the mailing list.
