Topic: Large amavis tables, postfix queue delays...

I followed these instructions to disable amavisd spam filtering, virus scanning, but intentionally left DKIM signing.

1. This doesn't prevent amavisd from making database entries about emails that amavisd processes.
2. The script iredadmin/tools/cleanup_amavisd_db.py will not run if spam filtering is disabled.

Because of this the amavisd database grows over time. We had over 16M records in the msgs table which was impacting performance enough to cause queue backups and delays.

My mistake. Still need to comment out "@storage_sql_dsn =" line in Amavisd config file.
I updated doc to mention this:
