Greylisting will be much more effective than this approach, and is 
easier to implement.  Combine that with sbl-xbl and maybe a few other 
DNSBLs, add greet_pause of five or ten seconds, and you have much more 
effectiveness with less false positives and much less maintenance. 
Adding clamav rounds out the whole thing.  I wrote an article that
