Of course I'm running a caching server...my thought was to run a single
cacheing server for all of our mailservers to maximize the value of the
cache.

What I'm saying is if I ran a caching server on each of our individual
filter boxes, our volume would appear to be much less unless they
aggregated usage by netblock. I suspect many of the "heavy hitters" do
this.
