Topic: clamav is taking long time to scan the emails, around 20s per mail

I have a mail server with a lot of users, i'm facing problem; clamav is taking long time to scan the emails, around 20s per mail, normaly we have around 100 mail incoming per minute and round 40 outgoing per minute, and that makes the queue to grow a lot bigger than what is suposed to.

Is there a way to optimize clamav to decrease the scan time whitout compromise to much the security?

How do you confirm it's caused by ClamAV? not Amavisd/SpamAssassin or other components?
