On my old mail server I had problems with it's data store getting
corrupted.  Not to mention it was taking a long time to insert or remove
entries from the access file and to process the maillog. I ended up
writing my own blacklisting program using a custom function I added to

On my current mail server I just look at the information logged by
MailWatch to generate the blacklist, which is then written out to a file
in rbldnsd format.
