    Yep historically spam,

    I have a few friends on Yahoo/Hotmail and those are specifically allowed.

    I have also found that spammers are now using my email addy as a return
    address, and guess what they spam yahoo & hotmail, so I also save on
    heaps of false bounces from yahoo & hotmail.

    I also block IP ranges and countries as Dave has done as those are
    mostly spam. I am finding now though that most spam is now (mostly
    US/canada) cable/adsl based rather than yahoo / hotmail based so I am
    now considering moving to spamassassin despite my reluctance in the past.

    I do like clamav, it seems to be catching both spam and some phishes as
    well, so if anybody has sendmail its a very easy mod and well worth it.
