Finally had time to research this and it looks like I got firewalled around 1 
October. I guess spamassassin caught the load as there wasn't a significant 
increase of end user spam. I just used up some more of the systems horsepower.
It is nice that the system had enough headroom to keep up. Still a lot less 
than the 100K per day or 320K connections per day that you are allowed.
I see an average of less than 6K per day on the crapification scale.

MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
