Where do you RBL

I do RBL elimination in Sendmail. The reason is that I want to eliminate
spam as  far as possible, not oly tagging it as spam.
A lot of 'tagged' spam can be false positives, but mail from open relays can
safely be eliminated. Normal users use SMTP servers from there ISP's which
usually are closed.

In spamassassin mail only get's tagged.

On my quest to kill spam, I am finding out that you can check an RBL at 3

- MTA (Feature(dnsbl...) in Sendmail
- Mailscanner
- SpamAssassin

Where do you check an RBL from? And why?
I would think SpamAssassin is best because it adds up to the scoring system
do you agree?
