I've a similar setup, but not mcp (i'm going to check that) i've
servers on peru with the "publicidad" rule that matchs a lot of spam,
but did you notice spam floods from .info domains (only in peru not in
other latin country)?
Now i'm seeing false negatives with turism advertisers (in spanish)
that spamassasin cant catch, or e-learning. i've written some custom
rules that seems to help but they are not wide enough.
