I suggest you setup smtp authentication. I setup this kind of smtp and it seems viruses cannot authenticate by themselves.

I have a mail server with FreeBSD 7.0, postfix+amavis-new+spamassassin. We
are an ISP and I need to filter the spam that our susbribers are sending to
internet, the PCs have some malware or are botnets. These PCs generates a
lot of spam each day.

The server filters a los of Spam but some times the queue is so crowded. I
have to questions...
Do you have any recomendation to improve the performance onthe server ??

How can I catch more spam than the seerver is filtering ? The server blocks
many messages but another spam messages goes to internet cause the score
does not reach the parameters to be blocked.

thanks a lot. Regards.
