Ah! I thought it was a bit odd that you were suggesting that.

Or just live with a slow spool ... one of my mail gateway servers is an
old V1280 with /var/spool/exim/input on the same disk as /var. This disk
is of course somewhat busy, but Exim still turns around most messages in
under a second ... considerably faster than the (mostly) PC-based
mailbox servers manage their work.
