i would tend to disagree. 
A elitist blocks them at smtp. why let them on the box at all?
in postfix i have these rules.

i know alot of people here are running debian and exim so i cant speak to how it 
works on exim.

smtpd_helo_required = yes
smtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_mynetworks, check_client_access hash:
/etc/postfix/pop-before-smtp, reject_unauth_pipelining, reject_invalid_hostname,
, reject_unauth_destination, reject_maps_rbl, permit

maps_rbl_domains = rbl-plus.mail-abuse.org, bl.spamcop.net, relays.ordb.org, 
sbl.spamhaus.org, KR.rbl.cluecentral.net, JP.rbl.cluecentral.net, CN.rbl.
cluecentral.net, BR.rbl.cluecentral.net, blackholes.mail-abuse.org
during sobig i recieved one copy of it, that is all.
i still haven't gotten one of whatever this weeks fad is either, yet.

personally i have been shocked by how effective this has been to date, virtually 
zero spam, no blocked legit mail (checked via logged failures) and it has 
eliminated almost all virus's to date. now lets just hope i dont regret opening 
my mouth.
