The large national tier 1 that I work for gets about 40,000 automated 
emails from AOL every day.  I thought it was one for every email that 
was sent from our netblocks, but are these actually from people that 
have reported something as spam?  There are SO many that it's a 
significant load on our mail server.  Our Exchange server could never 
have hoped to keep up.  And our abuse department has no chance to keep up.

I'll have to look into abacus to see if it can be of some service to our 
abuse department.
