Hi Raymond,

Well, what a difference the surbl makes to my system! I have gotten rid
of all the custom rulesets (I had several) and have implemented surbl
fully. Thank you for your suggestion.

The server processes about 100k messages a month. It's the weekend, and
this mail server is mainly for corporate clients but the load average is
a healthy 0.98 now. Much better than the 3.5 it was averaging with
Bigevil and friends. We'll see what this week brings.
