How will you deal with the problem, that one user can flood your
SMTP Server with tousends of emails within 10-20 minutes?
Virus filtering

Rate limit (+ script to auto terminate user) and smtp auth on outbounds

Separate inbound and outbound smtp relay. Don't let your inbound MX relay for your dialup pool (some trojans take the rDNS name / hostname of the infected box and do nslookup -q=mx domainname)

Ask AOL for an [email protected] feed - a lot of these trojan spams seem to target AOL users.
