if you're looking for free lists of "spam ip#" and emails of spammers
to disallow them access to your systems


	- there's about 100 RBLs to pick from 
	- some of them give you a list of ip# .. others give a list of
	email addy of the spammer to specifically deny

- antispam policy should be done at the router and mta ...
	- procmail methods are too late, you've already received the
	spam and they have confirmed your addy as valid for more spams
