Ah! As I wrote, my only amavis experience comes from the amavis-perl version 
as bundled in SuSE 8.0 Professional. I admit, the hardware it has to run on 
is not the most sophisticated available in the market (old Pentium 133 from 
the junkbox, 64MB). But as I only needed a mailserver for my family, I didn't 
want to invest in a new server. The change to avmilter sure improved the 
performance a lot. I wonder if SuSE 8.1 comes with amavisd, or still with the 
slooooow amavis-perl version? This might just help me decide it is time for 
another donation to SuSE and perform an upgrade...
