Having ISPConfig running with postfix and amavis is great. However, when you'd like to have your server as a mass emailing server to mailing lists, this is a bottle-neck.

When checking top on the server I saw amavis taking up a lot of CPU while the mailing were sent.
Since we know those mails are without spam/viruses , it'd be smart to close the amavis in order to gain better cpu performence of the server.

Edit /etc/postfix/main.cf
 receive_override_options = no_address_mappings
 content_filter = amavis:[]:10024

#receive_override_options = no_address_mappings
#content_filter = amavis:[]:10024

Restart the postfix
# /etc/init.d/postfix restart
