I have a large set of rbls i use. i too have been blocked and unable to get 
off of the lists once way back in the past and hated them with a vengence....

here is the lists im using on postfix and i get virtually no spam and this is 
a production system with hundreds of users. 
maps_rbl_domains =,,,,,,,,,,, 
only time we/I have lost any mail was when they were ddos'ing the rbl's off 
the net and OsiruSoft/joe jared blacklisted everyone.
