More than five is a bad week for me. I use:
1) strict DNS checks (matching forward/reverse)
2) my homegrown sendmail access file and regex maps
to detect and reject dynamic ip ranges, based on
host name (works because #1 strictly enforced)
3) a few key blacklists:
dnsbl.njabl.org (127.0.0.2, 127.0.0.4, 127.0.0.8, 127.0.0.9)
sbl-xbl.spamhaus.org (127.0.0.2, 127.0.0.4)
I estimate 70% or more SPAM is stopped by #1 and #2, thus reducing the
blacklist query load.
