Use it with my business mail server with virtually perfect success - much less 
load average than Spam Assassin, and no false positives, too. With 
Milter-Greylist and using the SpamHaus sbl-xbl black list, SPAM load is down 
over 98%. (from thousands per day to perhaps 20!) 

Now I protect a small ISP with it, with about 3,000 accounts. It uses LOTS of 
system resources when you get that big... We have a single mid-range Athlon 
system just for the greylisting, as the MX for the 500 or so domains - and 
that pretty well taps the machine! 

It has a tendency to get itself "confused" under very heavy loads, so we have 
a cron script that runs every 5 minutes to tail the maillog file and restart 
everything if it goes awry. 

But, it works pretty well.
