Useing rbldnsd? I set this up once, we used a crappy single cpu p3 server 
with like only 512 ram, thats how gutless it was..(well it was only 
occupying storage space otherwise)...  Our 6 key mail servers processed 
well over 3 million messages a day and it never murmered, nor was 
there any impact on the mail servers, we went this way because it was 
easier to maintain our mail blocking rather than add them to all the
servers access lists.
