hi there,

i've got procmail setup with spamassassin and when someone e-mails to my mailman mailing list my server almost shuts down for 10 minutes, i'm looking for a procmail rule that will say, if it's comming from * allow and not pass onto spamassassin.

or something of that nature, can someone help me with that?

Have you tried editing the procmail rules?

On my system the rules are set up in the ~/.procmail/ directory and they are sourced from the ~/.procmailrc file. If you find these files try adding something like this before the spamassasin entry.
* .*@mydomain\.com
where $DEFAULT is defined in ~/.procmailrc as the mail file to append to.
