I have set my procmail TIMEOUT=90 so I don't wait too long for
SpamAssassin spamc to do its thing. Does anyone have a suggestion
if this is too short or too long?
Too short. In fact, don't kill spamc. It has its own timeout:
-t: timeout in seconds to read from spamd. 0 disables. [default: 600]
Procmail defaults to sixteen minutes; spamc, to ten. I'd cut spamc's
timeout in half, but no more than that. That's spamc -x -t 300.
