I guess I'm not familiar with the solution in the Sendmail book.  It
does help to at least have sendmail use RBL though...  I also add a
lot of the more annoying spammers to /etc/mail/access...

Yes, procmail is your friend.

    osiris:~$ wc -l .procmailrc
       1243 .procmailrc

Of course, that doesn't help when you have multiple users...

.cn and various other Asian countries seem to have a lot of open
relays.  I'm always nervous about blocking large chunks of APNIC
address space though...  It works great for filtering spam, but you
could potentially be blocking legitimate mail from a *lot* of people.
