I'm just worried about the thousands of emails that come in all the
time that are spam...  An they sit around in your memory timing out
because of dns lookups...

Would I need a special dns daemon hanging around for doing just this task ?

How do you achieve this?  And to me it sounds more like your
downloading an entire list of dns all at once instead of caching
entries only as they are requested...

Are your local mirrors still accessed behind a dns server?
