I did some reading through other posts, and wanted to get some more input 
about this.

In a mail gateway configuration, several people have suggested that using a 
tmpfs (or mfs, depending upon your flavor of Unix) would provide a 
performance increase (i/o).   Though someone argued (on a list posting) 
that the buffering on normal disk operation would probably be better.

Can someone shed some light on this.
