Almost 100,000 spams and 500-1000 non-spam.

spohr.debian.org is mostly the BTS, and it isn't realy an issue of
machine resources.  The single-threaded spamscan we currently have
means we have to be able to process all 100,000 messages in less than
a day, so we have less than a second to spend on each on average.
Doing DNS or anything else involving a remote database takes longer
than that.

With Microsoft, failure is not an option.  It is a standard feature.
