A very good suggestion was made by one of our users to keep a sticky thread on the forum with a list of our suggestions for the MAPS and SURBL servers to be used in SpamFilter. We'll also keep the thread open for everyone to contribute.

For the MAPS servers, this is our current suggestion:, true, true, true, true

The last server from can be a bit too aggressive for some users - only by testing it out you will find out if it's a good fit to your environment.

For the SURBL servers, this is the only one we use in our own live servert:

In case anyone cares, according to" rel="nofollow - this page is included in so you do not need to make calls to if you are using zen.

That's a good suggestion indeed. I'm testing that server currently, still not decided if it fits my needs.

Just ran some performance numbers, when Spamhaus contacted us regarding renewing their service - with a major price jump.

Here are some lists we use and the false positive rates we see with each.

Invaluement - .20%
Spamhaus - .07%
SpamCop - 0.88%
UCE Protect - 1.75%

Clearly, Spamhaus has the lowest false positive rates.  We offer UCE Protect to customers who want to increase their level of protection at the risk of higher false positives and clearly they do have a much higher false positives rate.

If you use a list and have good results, please post it here.

How about the false positive rates of some other filters???

SFDE - 0.76%
SFDB - 0.09%

SPF Filter - 1.09% (this one always has a high false positive rate)
