This really caught my attention.  I am still using SIMS for a few small domains and the spam is killing us - especially from outside the US.  How would I go about forbidding these numbers?

I've also found that for small sites (anyone running SIMS today has to qualify) it is likely to be very helpful to handle your own local blacklist in a way that would be unsuitable for most public lists. For example, most small sites in the US could forbid all of 80-92.*, 210-211.*, and 122-125.* and never lose any legitimate mail.

Unless, as in our case, you happen to host a small but well connected research/consulting group with regular correspondence with places like China, Brazil, Eastern Europe, and other typical spam-source IP blocks.
