Yeah, except when you need to exchange emails with domains on

Instead, I suggest to use a ``no rdr'' line after rdr'ing those in the
blacklists to spamd. Actually, yes, because it makes your filter rulesets easier to parse
visually, but you want the "no rdr" *first*. This is the configuration
that we are using.
Uh well, to each his own -- in my case, spews1 hasn't caused any false
positives, yet. When I whitelist someone like Gmail and it shows up in SPEWS1
eventually, I really need no more mail from @gmail.com accounts. (Personal
choice, and according to the SPEWS FAQ I *should* be doing well with it.)
P.S.: Another table with another no rdr line in front with the "I really need
mail from these guys no matter what"-IPs and netblocks is still an option.
;-) Which is a waste of time. If I'm going to go out of my way to
whitelist an IP, I don't want to do it twice. The fact that I'm putting
something in a list to make sure that no matter what that it can talk to
me, I'm sure as hell going to bypass whatever blacklist it may or may not
end up on.
But you are right, YMMV.
