I'm 600 short of 100,000 pieces of spam since 26/1/2010. :) This isn't just
from debian lists, though. It's all-up.

This does not take into account the false negatives. I'm pretty sure I'm
over 102,000 with those. That may seem a tad high to some but imo a false
negative is better than a false positive.

On top of this there are 2,300 virus laden emails over the same time

Unrealistic expectations, I'd say.
