A Few Post Install Questions

I finished the install in production and it was really smooth to set up.  :)
So I have a few setup questions I thought I would ask the group.

Currently I am running a 5 for Spam Actions and I quarantine them and a 9
for the High Scoring Spam Actions witch are deleted. This might be hard to
answer, but would that be a normal setup for a company?

Would it be unwise to push up the Spam score on RCVD_IN_BL_SPAMCOP_NET  and
a few other list servers to something like 15 to force the mail into a high
score and force the delete?  I figure if they are in the lists then I don't
need them.

I have installed MailWatch for the first time,  and I really like it.  But I
did have a concern with the Whitelist/blacklist. It seems less functional
then the normal tables and it does not look like it supports wildcards. Is
that truly a disadvantage?   

Currently I have MCP Checks set to no in the MailScanner.Conf but in the
mail log I see this message:
Jul 19 12:03:54 cat MailScanner[30088]: MCP Checks completed at 1389073
bytes per second Is that normal?
