I would suggest ORFilter, which is completely free and integrates well with Exchange.

This compares the IP address the email is coming from against a, user selecteable, blacklist.

We use the Spamhaus list   (sbl-xbl.spamhaus.org) see

http://www.spamhaus.org/xbl/index.lasso

for details about what is included in the list
