I'm using it with MySQL, my database is only 900MB with 15000 mails and
it works fine.
How did you integrate clamav with postfix?
I think through milter is the fastest solution, and if the milter
crashes, the mail won't just get scanned, but if a "smtpd_proxy_filter"
crashes, the mail will wait in queue and will not be delivered to dbmail.
smtpd_milters = unix:/var/run/clamav/clmilter.sock
