Slightly OT, but what I did to solve my volume problem was rbldnsd 
(; my own RBL. I've never 
trusted any of the RBL's entirely, except maybe Zen, but then we 
started doing major loads of International email and still wasn't 
sure about them.

The point being, I not only took a load out of my user's inbox, but 
also off my MTA, because I use my own RBL to block at MTA. I compile 
my RBL list from MailWatch database of spammers and of all infected Zombies.

It really helped me!
