Great anti-spam helper page

I just came across a page at Declude detailing a large number of current DNS based spam databases, also known as block lists. These include the usual DNSBL lists that block receiving mail from specific servers, and also include RHSBL lists as well.

The RHSBL lists are something I just recently discovered, they are used to filter mail based on the sender's email domain, as some spam may actually pass through legitimate servers, this will catch some additional junk mail that might pass through other filtering. I'm trying out some additional filtering based on RHSBL, I'll report on the results in a few days.
