If you use a sendmail.mc file from which to build your sendmail.cf, you'll
find Phil McMahon's sendmail excellent LOCAL_RULESETS of great interest.
I've been running a subset of these sendmail rules in one form or another
(in addition to the filtering I do with MIMEDefang), for 5 years.  Some of
the rules are aggressive, so read his cautions carefully.
