Bayes should be ok, it's on SQL with a copy held locally. DNS recursor  
is on the box and in use. The only thing I have still got in place is  
all the standard RBLs & URI-RBLs. However they don't seem to be the  
issue. When I manage to capture a suspect message and run it back  
through manually SA chokes at 'Running body tests' (Or at least that's  
the last line it prints before it times out) so I am keen to grab a  
selection of messages to see what, if any thing they have in common.
