|If used properly, blocklists work wonders. I set our mail server to
|place a header in the message if it tests positive on a blocklist. I
|set my mail client to look for this header and dump it in the trash
|bin if the header exists. My mail client also searches for my proper
|email address in the To header. If it's not there, to the trash bin.
|This nails 70% of spam. I then scan thru my trash bin to check for
|I don't think any blocklist has lost a suit since they don't actively
|prevent the transport of email. Just a nuisance that dweebs exist.
|That's a dandy of a word, tergiversations.

Windows version of SpamAssassin... about 99% effective.
