  I have spooling disabled in innfeed.conf by 
default. Though I do have a few peers that tend 
not to respond for short period of times.  I had 
spent hours systemically changing each variable 
in innfeed.conf to see if I could reduce the 
amount of times this happened - I never could 
find any variable that seem to help.  I have 
spent hours probing the logs trying to figure out 
if I could narrow it down to a specific feed - I never could.

Guess I am going to have to wait for Russ to release INN 2.5.

Thanks much for the information, I appreciate it.
