qmail and the RBL

Paul Vixie is involved in a project called the Mail Abuse Protection System (MAPS). He is publishing his list of sites which engage in, or tolerate abuse of email. This Real-time Blocking List (RBL) is available, well, in real-time. This list is available as a BGP feed, or through the DNS. Dan Bernstein has a fake SMTP server called rblsmtpd which consults the RBL and traps accesses by RBL'ed hosts.

After you've installed rblsmtpd, you can test it.
