If you have anti spam with your anti virus then this would be redundant and can be avoided.

I would recommend some other ones like Barracuda Block List and UCEProtect Level 1 Block lists more than SpamHAUS personally.

Yeah, blacklists are great because generally those get squashed first, so your anti-spam doesn't have to do any thinking about it. We have Barracuda appliances and use their blacklists.
Anyone can sign-up to use them:

I've also used SPAMHAUS, but the Barracuda list does a pretty good job. It weeds out a LOT of bad stuff.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

But the point is if the Anti spam is going to go through the mails again then why have a blacklist filter.

Normally if it is blasklisted, it is blocked and not scanned for SPAM, viruses, et.. Blacklists are more accurate, because it refers to the source and not the content.
