Sorry, I meant for the "Postal" benchmark only. I would hope that locally
delivered emails are kept until the recipient gets it in the normal case.

In any case, you also pointed out the same thing I did, namely that these
slab entries (while having some high numbers) do not account for the large
amount of used memory in the system. Maybe SysRQ-M output can help a bit?
