    Yesterday i have had the same problem.
    the "problem" at my server was, that the virus-scan of the mails took more time than emails arrived. means the server scans 5 mails in 5 minutes, but 10 mails arrived in 5 minutes (not real values...). at the end of yesterday i had 788 mails in the queue (command "mailq" at the terminal to see the queue). and 100% CPU and a lad of 200. the server was dead. after switching the virus-scan off the load is at 2-7. hope this helps
