SpamAssassin is not a reliable way to tag messages, because it
considers IPs in *all* Received: headers, not just the single one that
has to be considered (the one that contains the real IP from which the
spammer sends his crap).

Try using a more sophisticated script in perl or some such.

The cbl.abuseat.org list, which is the core of XBL list, is available
via rsync.

Also, please don't mix the SBL and the XBL, they are different lists,
which may be used in combination, or separately.
