The default max_size for spamc is 250k, and if your system is taking
more then 10 seconds to process a 250k email, your problem is somewhere
else :)

If you pipe a message through spamc manually, how long does it take?

You probably don't want all those -d flags; func, poll, and spamc both
log a lot of lines for each message.  Most syslog daemons write in
synchronous mode to their logfiles, so that could be slowing you down
quite a bit.

What does "top" say when one of these big messages is being processed?
