    Re: Mercury wasting CPU and reading disk all the time

    To put my previous answer in context we have about 170 mail accounts, no POP3, about 10 IMAP/remote SMTP connections. We use a filtering service (Proofpoint) so use MErcury C, but don't use an integrated AV solution, and instead rely on Proofpoint and our installation of Sophos on the client machines but Sophos does not monitor the Mercury folder or the PMail folder on the server.

    Troubleshooting CPU issues can be tricky. I can see you are using SysInternals so perhaps as well as Process Explorer you can also use Process Monitor to capture activity during a CPU spike and see what the Mercury process is doing. It may give you an insight.
