Those were NDRs, not DMARC reports.  It was long before DMARC was even
invented.  For me the most surprising thing about it was that I didn't
even notice the load on my server, just the much larger log files.

On today's servers, dealing with 500,000 messages a day is not a big
deal.  Any generic server in a rack can do it.
