Re: Fw: Administrivia: ORBS

Paul Vixie's Mail Abuse Prevention System addresses this.

The MAPS Relayed Spam Stopper is similar to ORBS but *only lists
servers that are known to have been used to spam.*

It's not as proactive as ORBS. But there are a lot fewer false
positives. I'd venture to say that the actual number is very
close to zero. :)

My opinions DO, in fact, represent the official opinions of North
Shore Technologies Corporation, since I own the company. Thanks for
asking.
