YMMV, of course! I'm using spamhaus.org's blacklists for quite some time (many years) to block spam in postfix and they've been VERY trustworthy so far. But I can't say the same for the others, which seem occasionally a little bit too eager/aggressive and accumulate way too many false positives. -cpghost. -- Cordula's Web. http://www.cordula.ws/ _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
