Michele, i use a combination of SEC (http://simple-evcorr.sf.net/), 
inserting IPs sending spam mails (at 3 per minute) and virus infected mails 
(at 2 per minute) in to a mysql database (though you could use a flat file). 
This is picked up by a remote machine running rbldnsd. 

I could send you mailscanner related SEC rules if required, though its 
really simple (as compared to swatch). 

The results vary from amazing to zilch at times, since i expire the data 
after an hour..
