Do not use more than 1 or 2 in MailScanner. If you want to block 
completely on them, then block in your MTA. Otherwise let SpamAssassin 
score them all for you.

MCP has a very high speed overhead, and you can do virtually anything 
with "SpamAssassin Rule Actions" that you can do with MCP anyway, and it 
is a lot faster.
