Subject: Centralizing milters

Hi All,

Up until now we've been running single server type situations with the  
snert milters, self-contained with each server running their own  
copies of the milters. Now we're looking to centralize, particularly  
with ClamAV and Spamassassin.

I know the hows and the whys, just wondering if there are any gotchas  
to look out for, good values for limits/timeouts, or any tips for the  
clamd/spamd config.

And to add another question to this, how do you currently separate the  
services? For example, do you have:

a) the milters running on each server, and central clamd/spamd.


b) Centralized everything (milters, clamd, and spamd), and using
    IP:port for the socket in the sendmail.mc on the individual

If we could get clamd, spamd AND the milters off of the individual  
servers that would be great, but worried about issues of sendmail  
compatibility if the versions differ at some stage between central  
server and the individual ones if we move the milters as well.

Thoughts? Thanks!
