Sorry when I asked what MTA, I wanted to know what MTA Alex runs.

Alex, please tell us what MTA you run!

Your mail structure looks nice!

So tell me once your OpenBSD accepts the mail, it goes to the postfix
machines. Does the OpenBSD server know what users are valid and what
aren't? Do you postfix MXs know what users exist or don't?

I am running SA on my server, it work well but I am studying a move onto
dspam. I think it will give me much more granularity than SA, people say
that it is also much more accurate. I am yet to see!
