That are indeed very good options but we are an hosting-provider and we 
want the customer to decide what is SPAM and what is not. Only for the 
customer who really understands what is happening and what it means, we 
want to implement this features. Also, at the moment we use windows 
mailservers with MailScanner in front of them. I did not investigate yet 
if these milters will work with the mailserver.

I'll keep them in mind for the future. Thanx for the information.

Best regards,
