    Cons: The first E-mail we see from a given Mail Server to a given customer will be delayed hours.


Spamhaus:
    
Pros: Well-maintained and not overly-aggressive service used by many ISPs.
    Cons: Some inevitable inertia both adding and removing listings.


Backscatter:
    
Pros: Deletes Non-Delivery Reports.

Clam Antivirus:
    
Pros: Very effective.
    Cons: Few if any.


Spamassassin:
    
Pros: Will identify UCE otherwise missed.
    Cons: CPU intensive and the database can be corrupted by Spammer tricks.
