My MTA (postfix) works fine.
I humbly apologize. It seems that I was to hasty in my definition of
qrunner "spinning" its wheels.
I made some time measurements :
1 236 202 bytes took 2 minutes to process
4 053 188 bytes took 19 minutes to process
I this normal? Am I missing some option that I can turn of.
What is qrunner doing all this time?
