Hi, I have a question regarding how your product scales to an enterprise. To give you a better idea of "enterprise" we see on average 2000 email messages per hour.

Does anyone have any information or experience on how this product scales to this level of traffic? I love the product, and it works great but this has been brought up by management as a long term concern.

Any feedback, metrics, tests, or other evidence to support the scalability to this level would be greatly appreciated.

Our biggest customer has used SpamFilter on a server that handles about 1 million emails/day, with about 100-300 concurrent incoming connections at any given second. With that load, the SpamFilter process was using on average 30% processor time, and had a memory footprint of about 30-50MB of RAM. I cannot provide the company name without his permission, if they read the postings maybe they will do it for me.

Thanks Roberto, I appreciate the feedback. Hopefully this will alleviate any concerns and I will be able to proceed with a pilot project.
Any further feedback would also be appreciated.
