Little over a month after I moved to the new server, I have pretty much everything working to satisfaction.
The biggest change is after 10 years of emailing, I'm using Spam Assassin to tag my mails. I'm still not filtering them out at the server, but will probably do that once I have the bayes system trained. And I'm hoping the spam quantity won't shoot up beyond humanly scanable levels for catching false positives.
Spam Assassin is currently the single biggest memory hog on the system, outside of mailing lists spam vastly outnumbers legit mails I receive. It's hard to believe that until less than a year ago, I was pretty much spam free.
Now I can get around to taking advantage of php5+libxslt, After some minor tweaking to the feeds, I'll tackle the photo albums which haven't been updated in ages.
