Blocking JUnk Mails in postfix


How can I block junk mails in postfix. ie, by automatically getting updated about blacklisted mail id's from internet.

Please give the entry in postfix to refer to the blacklisted mail id's and block them.

Thanks in advance

See the link in my sig below for configuring Spamassassin with Postfix. After that a simple shell script can be used to auto-update the blacklists. Spamassassin removes about 85% of our spam at this point and can be configured to do just about anything with the spam it catches.
