I've not tried magicmail, but you might like to try qpsmtpd - another drop-in replacement for qmail-smtpd. I saw similar spam reduction since installing it. Actually, more like a 90% reduction since activating my check_validrcptto_cdb plugin . As it's written in perl, with a documented plugin architecture, it's very easy to extend and customise. Don't fall into the trap of thinking that because it's written in perl it's slow - it isn't. Plus, because it can reject so much spam at the "front door", overall system load is dramatically reduced. I had one client who was running vanilla qmail and seeing load averages of up to 30 (!). Since installing qpsmtpd (and my plugin) the system tickles along at a load average of 0.5.
