Likely, but it should be piped through spamd/spamc which is blindingly fast
in comparison to running spamassassin.rc

I would first check if Evo is using spamd/spamc and if not ask here how to
set that up if it is possible. And then if you are still getting slowdowns,
I would disable all but local dns lookups to see if that makes a difference
(add the -L switch to line 24 of /etc/rc.d/init.d/spammassain).
Another quite useful proggy I just installed is called ecncheck which you
can look for on freshmeat.net. It will check the connection between you and
a destination and let you know if it supports ECN, if it fails gracefully,
etc. I pointed it at my DNS servers and found that one of them was refusing
all connections at the time...so I moved it to the bottom of the resolver
pile. Lookups have been quite sprightly ever since.
