When tuning a FreeBSD Box for a Mail Server you must be aware that mail servers will need a very large number of network connections and small amount of data for a short period of time.

You can find how many network buffers you use:

netstat -m

Then you modify the following variables.

sysctl -w kern.ipc.nmbclusters=2048
sysctl -w kern.ipc.maxsockets=2048
