Are you using an RBL?  Spamcop's is very good and I use it
as a first line of spam defense; it catches a LOT of junk.

After that, I am sad to say, I blacklist some entire
countries for mail that goes to me or to my business.
100.00% of the mail I have received from China, Taiwan and
Korea has been spam or viruses.  Maybe someday they will do
something about it.  I'm close to zapping Brazil also.

Then there is my simple virus filtering that I mentioned a
while back on vox-tech; all mail containing a MS executable
is rejected at the door.  Not that I care about MS viruses
getting in, but they are annoying and take up space.

The rest gets in and SpamAssassin tags most of it, though
it's something I could easily live without.  I bump up the
threshold to avoid false positives.
