I use:

sbl.spamhaus.org
relays.ordb.org
dnsbl.njabl.org
cbl.abuseat.org
bl.spamcop.net

As to which are "best"... define "best". Most aggressive? Fewest false-positives? Fastest response time?

We use ordb.org and spamhaus.org

Stopped using sorbs.net because a few legit mails were being rejected, they were too aggressive.

I would say the fewest false positives would be best.  Better a few spam slip through then a few legits not make it.

Thanks for the input.  I think I'll start with ordb.org and spamhaus.org, since 2 of you shared those as a common denominator.

-----------------------
you should replace sbl.spamhaus.org with zen.spamhaus.org.

zen supercedes sbl, xbl, sbl+xbl, pbl.  Check www.spamhaus.org for info.
