Well, with examining in the thresholding mechanisms, I'l going to examine
rewriting my qmail-qfilter/dcc hack to instead of junking mail on only the
many tag, (easily accomplished with strstr'ing the header).  My boss
isn't real happy that I want to rewrite this, I may do it on my own time.

I can't readily use procmail on my qmail cluster because of the volume of
mail we have.  I'm shoving somehwere between 100,000-80,000 messages per
day, close to which 60,000 of it is spam, so you can where running
procmail on a user level wouldn't be the best idea.  Besides, I'd rather
bounce the message at the SMTP level, so the dimwit's mailserver that is
being abused as an open relay, can deal with the bounce messages.
