I haven't run the numbers recently but here are the figures as of

Spam Blocked:
      1 RBLed: SpamHaus
      2 local deny
      7 RBLed: OsirusSoft
     10 RBLed: ORDB
     15 RBLed: DSBL
     24 local subject
     57 owner mail
     80 no recipient
    142 invalid from
    180 global sender
    186 too many recipients
    232 invalid email address
    250 RBLed: OsiruSoft
    474 global body
   1434 RBLed: SpamCop
   2372 global from
   2736 global deny
   3888 no listname
   4728 global subject

total blocked by RBL = 1717
total messages = 60223
Spam percentage 28%

Most of these are getting through spamassassin for me, too.
There seems to be a big increase in spam recently.  I'm noticing
it on my personal email, as well.

I do add each and every spam message that I see to our filters.
I block the specific address, add YA regex to our subject filters,
when possible add a regex to the body filters, and, when possible
add a generic "block this regex in an email address" also.
