It's not only complex to set up, it's also a hell to repair when something
goes wrong. Like BelerkeyDB corruption or like having too many subdirs in
the same directory for UFS.
Another option, maybe not as fast, but that is really wonderful to
maintain (and easy to set up) is DBMail:
It's a POP / IMAP server that stores messages in a database. So removing
common SPAM from all mailboxes becomes as simple as an SQL query.
The latest release even supports SQLite.
Although it is not in ports, it works very well on OpenBSD.
