Other options for fighting spam

My ideal layered approach would be:

  • postfix with postgrey and clamav
  • sane RBLs (I do this already with sendmail)
  • spamassassin
  • that deal that scans for embedded URLs in spam
  • attachment filtering of banned extensions
  • intelligent procmail recipes, see above
  • host-based antivirus scanning

What I've implemented so far...
