Most DNSBLs have a "how-to" page with sendmail configuration examples. The sendmail site itself is pretty clear on how to do this (www.sendmail.org) > Any thoughts on spamcop.com? I use it, and I feed my spam to it. I think their approach to blacklisting is pretty unique... it's not the "central authority" model, it's more like a "popular vote" model. Anyone can "vote" by feeding their spam to spamcop. Downside(s)?? 1) Their servers apparently get overloaded sometimes, and don't respond. This can lead to two things - both of which are bad: spam gets through if you don't defer good mail gets delayed if you do defer 2) There was some flack a few months ago about spamcop being bought by a "commercial" outfit. You can Google for the news on this Finally - www.DNSstuff.com, the "Spam database lookup" is a great source of comparison between all or most of the available blacklists.
