I feel sorry for you. I'm lucky enough to have no reason to accept mail
from most of APNIC and all of LACNIC, so most of those areas are in the
firewall, and what isn't in the firewall is in the DNSBL.

Because a real mail server shouldn't have any of those characteristics.
If a machine which does exhibit them is trying to send you mail, the
chances are it's a zombified Windows machine trying to send you a virus
A group of cats is a "conceit". They'd like it to be called a "pride"
