MailScanner -> Spamassassin taking insane amount of bandwidth

I have the following configuration:
with spamassassin 2.61
sendmail 8.11.6-27
on an IBM x235 
2 2.4GHZ Processors
1.25 GHZ of RAM
Hot swapable raid 5 config.
We have about a 100 small sites configured for mail mostly and some,
This is running on RedHat Linux 7.3 Kernel 2.4.18-27.7.xsmp
We have been running MailScanner on that machine for almost 2 years now
without any problems.
Since we have activated the anti-spam features using SpamAssassin,  and
standard Spam-Checking throught the ORBS lists, our bandwidth usage has
more than doubled.
Before activating that feature, we were using 80-100GB of bandwidth per
month. Now we're up to 224GB for last month.
Has anyone ever heard of SpamAssassin doing this?
Thank you in advance for your help.
