We're using sbl.spamhaus.org and list.dsbl.org

Between the two, about 65% to 70% of incoming mail is rejected by the mail 
server. We seem to have a very poor signal to noise ratio for email on our 

Spamcop does not reccomend using their blacklist to block mail, rather, they 
suguest using it with score based filters such as spamassassin.

spamhaus should cause very few peroblems with false positives (they don't 
blacklist large netblocks on a whim), and list.dsbl.org only lists single IPs
