      To keeping away zombies from smtpd, and do the decision as early
      as possible, it is natural that the similar access control
      functionality as implemented in smtpd may be required, I think.
      because zombies can be fixed their behavior over time,
      and the difference between legitimates may be just their IPs
      accesing from and reverse DNS names. so that the RBLDNS
      scoreing works very effectively in my site now.

      If there are any additional features to the postscreen,
      at least, policy-delegation I/F is useful for that purpose.
