A couple of notes:

1) This advice:

| Tue Jun 10 14:55:36 2008 [72096] dbg: conf: trusted_networks are not
| configured; it is recommended that you configure trusted_networks
manually

should not be ignored. Setting trusted_networks would slightly reduce
the number of DNS lookups and can avoid all sorts of funny error
situations.

2) The WHOIS_* rules have proven pretty ineffective in my setup, and I
have disabled them without negative impact on overall filtering
effectiveness.

3) Do you reject connections at the MTA level with a selection of
blacklists (eg sbl/xbl/pbl/zen.spamhaus.org) and/or other means? This
should greatly reduce the workload on SpamAssassin.

4) How big are the bayes and AWL files? How do you do maintenance on them?
