All from outside -> in..
I've been averaging about 110K-130K emails per days, with about 4-5K
allowed thru as being considered valid. Knock 10% off the delivered
amount for false negatives (delivered but are really spam). Rest are
spam or invalid recipients and viruses.

Is the increase of traffic from inside out or outside in?

Can you determine the nature of the increase? Is it just spam/junk?
I'm seeing a significant increase in my personal mail due to Spam/Junk
mail just within the last week.

I was finally able to do the numbers:
We do 1,000,000 emails a day
We did 1.3 million that day..
Something must have happened...
