 170 million messages a day? Quite impressive.

 No way. I'd guess that even a 450 wouldn't be able to do this with a
 current version of amavis, even if tweaked to run with eg. SpeedyCGI.

 Rather than amavis, I'd suggest to use something like Bennett Todd's
 mailfilt/tailbiter. Maybe combined with offloading the actual scanning
 to another machine.
