What is your local definition of "bulk"?  As I should have noticed
before, judging from that DCCM_REJECT_AT=, nothing is bulk at your
site.  You need to set DCCM_REJECT_AT to something, and probably
do as the preceding lines in /var/dcc/dcc_conf say and add -aIGNORE
to DCCM_ARGS until you are sure that you have whitelisted all
legitimate sources of bulk mail.
