Ah... I see. Yes, you are correct. It is rblsmtpd that is doing the  
filtering.

One of my goals with this mail server set up (primarily pf, qmail,  
spamassassin, maildrop, courier) was to minimize processing, since my  
last set up got totally bogged down handling my, and my client's  
email, frequently running with a load of 8 or more with several spam  
per second. A real drag.

This set up runs at a much lower load, and seems to do a better job  
filtering spam.
