Since you have been using them in spamassassin, you could look through your
logs and see how the different lists are hitting. I am using
and, although the latter doesn't hit much because most of
the junk has already been rejected by zen. If your logs don't show FP's on a
list, you would be safe to put it in the MTA.

MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
