I really hate to brag, but I must. My antispam system reduces those
kind of bounce notices to one or two a week at most with no false
positives for any list. However in its current form, I wouldn't
recommended it for sites with a traffic rate of greater than 4-8
messages per second. On the other hand, it is running on a Pentium
III/500 MHz machine with heavy logging and I have never really pushed it.
