It hasn't been anything out of the ordinary in terms of traffic levels. 
The FreeBSD mail servers have been functioning normally over the past 
few weeks, although there was a problem with bot traffic causing a bad 
reputation score for the FreeBSD mail servers.  It's possible your mail 
provider has been mistakenly classifying some mailing list traffic as spam.

You can compare the traffic you've seen with the archives on to see if there are messages you haven't actually 

Your ultimate resource for mail problems is to contact 
postmaster at who are incredibly helpful, but obviously can 
only fix problems with the FreeBSD systems themselves.  Otherwise you'ld 
need to speak to whoever provides your email service.
