Unless you give more information and examples, I guess the answer is a  
definite yes, no and it depends.

Some of the "tell your MTA to be less gullible about it using MTA  
tricks and SPF" suggestions are MTA-dependent, so you can help us  
narrow it down by detailing that. Other tools (such as rulesets by IP)  
can help at the MailScanner level. Let us know a bit more about your  
particular situation and I'm sure some of us will be able to help you  
(for example, I rarely - if ever - touch postfix, as it causes  
swapping ;-) and never had to set up qmail with MailScanner, so I can  
help a bit if sendmail's involved).

Cheers, and Happy New Year!
