Mailscanner PC requirements

Hi all,

First OFF NEWBIE here - so  please bear with me--

I have installed  FreeBSD 5.4 on a box that I plan to use Mailscanner to
"filter" the mail prior to hitting my Mail server.

Its on a PII 450 with 256mb ram  and a 12 gig drive.

I would like to know

1) How can I check to make sure the system is running OK ( I'm from the
windows world) where we have event logs  and performance monitor to make sure
the install was done correctly, give you page fault data mem ,cpu usage

Any tools  or commands in FreeBSD that can give me this type of info?

2) given the above specs, is that ok to handle mail for roughly 40 users?

Thanks in advance
