Here are the RBL lists I use:
blackholes.mail-abuse.org, dialups.mail-abuse.org, relays.mail-abuse.org,
inputs.orbz.org, relays.osirusoft.com, relays.ordb.org, bl.spamcop.net
The last one bl.spamcop.net is the latest addition. It dynamically adds IP
addresses to it's list based on spam reports received, and it catches lots of
spam that the other lists (which wait for manual review) don't get.
When I receive mail to my personal addresses I always report it to spamcop.
When I see mailing list mail that arrived some time ago (more than an hour)
then I don't bother reporting it on the theory that someone else already has.
But if mailing list arrives while I'm online I report it ASAP so that
spamcop's RBL will register the IP while the spammer is in the middle of
sending out the spam and interrupt their spamming!
However all of this doesn't do much good while the mailing list servers don't
implement any filtering. I think that all mailing lists should check for
valid MX or A records on the from address and use some of the RBL lists to
prevent spam from entering the list.
I've CC'd debian-isp and BCC'd debian-ipv6 as this discussion really belongs
on the ISP list.
