Hi all,

I have a very strange problem with a machine. The box have a postfix
which give e-mail to an amavisd-new and deliver ham to mailboxes.

The problem is the mail queue grow but the machine doesn't work at full
capacity. CPU is 90% idle, vmstat don't see proc are waiting for
anything, disks are playing poker and there is a lot of RAM available.

The machine have this problem under freebsd 6.3 and 7.0-RELEASE with a
bi-Xeon Quad core.

I have an another box which has the same configuration and it work
