Gateway mode for Communigate Pro

I use two sendmail/MailScanner/SpamAssassin/ClamAV gateways in front of 
my Communigate Pro mail server. I really like the features and user 
interface on Communigate Pro... But it costs a lot for their in-house 
version of SpamAssassin.  I find that this combination works very well. 
I send outbound directly from the Communigate Pro server, but the MX 
records point to the gateways which forward to the Communigate machine 
(using mailertable). I also added Milter-greylist to sendmail. Also each 
gateway has its own BIND server for doing the RBL lookups. Right now I'm 
only doing a couple of hundred thousand eMails (inbound) a day across 
both gateways and they are not even breaking a sweat (each one is a dual 
2.8Ghz P4 Xeon machine with 1GB RAM).

Hope this helps.
