    I have the following set-up :

    - Max. e-mails per hr. set to "100"
    - SpamAssassin enabled for all accounts

    What I've noticed several times is the following :

    When a user on that server is sending a lot of e-mails over the limit per hr. these e-mails are bounced to the user's e-mail box; that's not a problem off course. The problem is that these bounced messages are being scanned by SpamAssassin, which can severely increase the server load. It has made the server irrisponsive on many occasions.

    Now I was wondering : Is it possible to configure SpamAssassin that it does no longer scans messages which has been bounced by going over the hourly limit.
