    Are you using catchalls?

    Are you using mailscanner

    Have you reimplemented RBL lists?

    Catchalls can hurt a lot, mailscanner can slow a server down in a hurry, and the RBL should help cut back the number of spams a bit.

    It would also be helpful to know if it is incoming out outgoing, sending spam can also overload a server.
