I know several ISP's that use single MS/SA combinations and it works
well. I'll look at why the spam is getting through, bad whitelists,
not enough third party SA rules etc etc. Perhaps if you post the
pastebin link for an example email (full headers etc), people can run
it over their systems and see what rules hit vs what rules hit for
your setup.
