With respect, my preferred approach differs slightly.
I instruct my MTA to reject (or, in certain special cases, silently
discard) the spam during the SMTP conversation.
Granted, there are several reasons that approach isn't for everyone --
or even very many folks; because of that, it may fail your "reasonable
thing" criterion. :-} But I find it useful despite that.
