If you're only getting 300 a day, your mail infrastructure is severely broken.
As I write this, I've gotten 2,151 mails from linux-kernel so far this month, and
it's only the 4th.  So 600-700/day is closer to what you should be seeing (plus
another 300+ if Greg KH patchbombs the list for one of the stable release
candidates...)

Having said that, a Raspberry Pi is more than capable of that volume - many
moons ago I was processing well over 1 million RCPT TO: per day on an IBM
RS6000/220, which boasted a whole whopping 128M of RAM and a 133Mhz CPU.
