+1 on the observation. addresses constitute the largest
number of spam rejections on our office MX. These have passed SPF and
DKIM validation.

Would Google not be able to scan outgoing emails for spam activity?  Our
MX's SpamAssassin spam filter is able to detect most of them by
content. Is Google unable to do better than what they currently do for
outgoing email?

(It is understandable some don't like spam filtering at all. But
practically, if all these spam emails were delivered, email would become
almost unusable.)
