I've found that a combination of:
* RBLs that dont suck
* URI-based filtering URIBL
has worked *very* well for me. Even if you don't really want the spamhaus list,
look into using the dsbl. It mostly consists of the worst configured hosts out
there -- ones where someone was able to fool it to list itself on the list.
I also echo that greylisting is a real pain.
