100:115 - 100:130? I wish it were that low.
Probably about 90% of the attempted mail deliveries to my MXer are
worm traffic. The aggressive heuristics mean that most don't make it
past MAIL FROM: and probably about 60% of what's left gets as far as
DATA before also being declined.
I'm considering rebuilding the mail system to gather better
statistics and be easier to fine-tune.
