    a heavily loaded mail server?
    Any suggestions for kernel tuning, sysctl tuning, network tuning, etc.. will
    be helpful

    The machine specs are:
    Pentium 4, 2.4GHZ
    512 MB RAM

    A good starting point would probably be the tuning(7) manpage.

    For performance tweaks specific to your particular MTA, a Google search
    is probably the best you can do. Most of the time, the changes you can
    do to improve performance for MTAs apply (more or less) to all UNIX systems.

    Then you will have to tell us more about the MTA you are using, the
    current setup and the expected load (in number of messages per day,
    hour, the number of users it supports, etc.)
