Use the spam filter that DJB makes for it - rblsmtpd. Basically, you run
rblsmtpd and give it qmail as it's argument (he suggests using it with
tcpserver). By default, rblsmtpd uses MAPS RBL (http://maps.vix.com/rbl)
So, the command would be something like this:
rblsmtpd /var/qmail/bin/qmail-smtpd 2>&1
You can add more realtime blacklists by nesting rblsmtpd in itself, like
rblsmtpd rblsmtpd -rrelays.mail-abuse.org /var/qmail/bin/qmail-smtpd 2>&1
You can use tcpserver as an access-control mechanism for email relaying,
too. Read all about it in Adam D. McKenna's Howto:
