I looked at 6 full days of my results. About 3.7% of the messages that
make it to SpamAssassin scoring (RBLs, attachment extension checks, and
ClamAV are earlier) were blocked *only* because of sender address
verification. That is, they were over the threshold with SAV, but under
the threshold without SAV.
