We are using mhonarc 2.1.0, IRIX 5.3 and perl 5.003. When the mailbox-files

Is this a bug?
No, its a feature designed to test how robust your system is :-)
Is there any option we can set to make mhonarc less memory?
Unsure on how effective it is, but it tells MHonArc to not
store converted message data into memory. The option causes a
slow down, but should save process space. Note, information to
create indexes and navigational links are still kept in memory.
A thing to note is that Perl has its own overhead. I would
bet the split in readmail.pl is not efficient when it comes to
Thanks for your answer!
Mhonarc still use far too much memory on the big (~ 11Mb) mailboxes. I had
an idea: What if we didnt convertet attachments for the big mailboxes, just
made them disapear into /dev/null? :) Maybe that would make mhonarc use
less memory. I have looked for a -nomime option, but havnt found a way to
tell mhonarc not to process attachments.
