Spamassassin is slow - any tips or good commercial alternative?

Correlation is not causation. SpamAssassin doesn't increase the number
of concurrent SMTP connections, as you receive e-mail normally *and
then* have it scanned in batches, not "in-line". You should either
increase (within reason) the number of possible incoming SMTP
connections in your MTA so that this doesn't happen.
If by increasing the possible incoming connections on the MTA your
performance goes down, you should look into either increasing your
hardware resources, tweaking your existing config, or getting more
bandwidth if that's your bottleneck.
