Partly my fault I suppose, I've got various settings tuned to avoid 
losing mail during testing of my new mail-setup. This whole exercise 
started because I have switched from dSpam to rspamd for 
spam-prevention. I had a whole forest of postfix-instances to fine tune 
things so spam-filtering was done before alias-expansion and after 
spf/dkim checks. Lots of other tweaks. I did have a working web-based 
quarantine though. Presently doing major demolition and converting to 
rmilter/rspamd, without quarantine. This means mailman gets to do the 
quarantine duty for spam to my lists.

I'm confident that the end-result will be less spaghetti-like, but I'm 
not there yet :-) . Also my rspamd is not fully trained and tested.

Done that, seems it did not "take" immediately. Spam flood has abated 
now, hopefully a few days to the next storm, by which time things will 
be in better shape.
