We don't only rely on spamassassin.

And yes, we already do that. We have quite a large number of methods
in place to reduce the amount of mail that makes it to SA. I didn't
bother to count how much mail actually was attempted to be delivered.
(when I wrote that I was concerned that we had somehow made SA super
slow, but no such luck.)

I'm in the process of working with DSA to add additional mail servers
in front of the bts to handle this issue. (They've configured
everything, I just need to have about 10 more hours in the day.)
