Recently I've been working with EFA spam filter. Open source so support is limited.

For the last two days during the night I've been having a problem where HUGE amounts of mail is being queued up. This box feeds and Exchange 2013 server.

From what I can determine from the logs is I'm running out of memory.

Thanks, I hope somebody is familiar with this product.

if i got you correctly do you want to know the number of messages limiting your connections further ?

Please clarify and let us know what exactly you want to ask...

It wasn't the number of messages but the fact that the box crashed twice on me. Unfortunately since this caused loss of important emails we've had to scape efa and go with a commercial product. I only hope that the efa project continues to improve it's product as I really do like it but it just isn't ready for enterprise use "unless" there's someone on site who is a Linux guru to tweak the software. I do appreciate your time on this and will give you the points as you were the only one to respond.

Thank you. Richard.

For spam filtering i would suggest to configure (Mailscanner + spamassassin +Razor + Pyzor + DCC ) this is what i am currently using for my setup on which my corp mails are getting scanned over the Linux box (Opensource solution) and mailboxes are hosted in exchange 2010.

In case wanna try.. you can refer below link

To be very frank.. this solution is working for me since past 2 years although 2-3 issues i have faced over the time but those were fixed with basic SA fundamentals.
