I'm pretty sure it did -- I haven't heard anything from my users
since installing it.
I also installed a ucspi-tcp (tcpserver) patch from <http://
linux.voyager.hr/ucspi-tcp/> that lets me limit simultaneous
connections per IP or class C netblock, and based on server load.
Right now, if the server load hits 7.00, I stop accepting mail on
port 25. I continue to accept it on port 587 (which now requires
AUTH, thanks to another patch) regardless of the system load. I've
been able to up my concurrencyincoming from 10 to 25, since it will
throttle under load but continue to accept connections if the current
connections are slow.
I also set up another server as backup MX with simscan/sa/clamav,
mirrored vpopmail/domains and most qmail/control files (so chkuser
works), and trust the mail that comes from that server. The backup
MX also handles mail that we simply forward to some clients' Exchange
servers, so that helped reduce my load as well.
