:BTW, there are others besides ORBS. For example,
:    rblcheck -s rss.maps.vix.com -s dul.maps.vix.com \
:	     -s relays.mail-abuse.org -s dialups.mail-abuse.org \
:	     -s blackholes.mail-abuse.org

BTW: vix==mail-abuse.org ;)  (rss=relays, dul=dialups)

There's also dev.null.dk.

:away, too. (But dialups.mail-abuse.org is probably the best since
:most spam comes from dialups anyhow.)

	I find much more spam coming to our domain being blocked by relays
than dialups.

:Or, you can maintain your own black list from:

	Seems semi-interesting.. I'm really looking for some server-side
stuff myself.  (more than anything.)  And I'm not too interested in putting
procmail on our mail relay either. ;)

[end]	Sounds pretty interesting in any case!  I haven't set it up yet
personally, and it isn't based on JUST the Received IP, because that is
highly variable.  (The only time that is really useful is when they are an
open relay which has been reported.  If ORBS is gone, then this is going to
be REALLY a lot more rare.)  (Speaking of which, I feel like I'm the only
one concerned about the whole ORBS thing?!?  Slashdot hasn't even covered it
either.. sheesh.)
