You are not supposed to inflict orbs as a filter on customers. They even
ask this. The normal orbs setup is to write an X-RBL: ORBS type header
to the mail so anyone can sort by it if they wish.

The linux-* lists at vger have their own spam filtering people, databases

And now back to parport stuff ...
