Yeah, blocking based on no/invalid rDNS is not a good idea for mail. What
I've found to work rather well is to reject mail where the From: or Reply-To:
address does not have a domain name that at least has a valid MX record. But
that won't catch most of the spam, honestly.
SpamAssassin, like others have mentioned, is working great on my server.
