Spam blacklist?

Indeed, that is one possible solution.

But not all of my boxes run spamassassin, particularly RedHat 6.2 is very
difficult to get SA properly installed. Lots of things to upgrade and 90%
of the spam problem is from or to a limited set of e-mail adresses on my boxes.

But one would think that a blacklisted mail adress would be processed
according to high scoring rules, otherwise there isn't much use in
blacklisting them :)
