I finally got around to reinstalling qpsmtpd yesterday. In and of itself that doesn't do a lot for me, but what revolutionizes my email is greylisting. The first time around the installation process I talked about how it worked, so I won't re-explain that here.

What I will say, though, is that in the day before installing greylisting I got at least 700 spam emails. In the 18 hours or so since: maybe a dozen. Most of those were then caught by spamassassin.

Ah, sanity has once again returned to my email.
