I was thinking of implementing & just wanted peoples opinions

Thanks

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.

Why spend so long doing email signature updates?

Do you spend loads of your time carrying out email signature updates? Not very interesting are they? Don’t let signature updates get you down. Let Exclaimer Cloud - Signatures for Office 365 make managing email signatures a breeze.

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.
