Using qpsmtpd for traps.spamassassin.org describes how SpamAssassin had been using Postfix on a donated server for their spamtraps.
Unsurprisingly, they were getting a lot of spam on that server, and postfix was having trouble keeping up. So they switched to qpsmtpd, "a flexible smtpd daemon written in Perl" which uses "Danga Interactive / Six Aparts insanely scalable event-driven asynchronous socket class".
