For reference, here is the mail volume for the last few days:
debbugs@spohr:/org/bugs.debian.org/mail$ for a in `seq 1 7`;do echo Apr $a
$(grep "Apr 0$a" .logfile|wc -l);done
Apr 1 59212
Apr 2 51344
Apr 3 43068
Apr 4 47002
Apr 5 52326
Apr 6 42214
Apr 7 69384
This is raw mail volume, that enters into promail.
