Actually, the IP I've found _should_ be listed in DNSBL - I don't want
to receive any e-mail directly from this host (some DSL line with
abusable web server running on it...).

Receiving e-mails via "some_big_MSP_smarthost" is completely another
thing.

But I don't want to constantly monitor and add to whitelisting rules
all the smarthosts that might be sending e-mails to us -- there are
far too many of them.

I'd really like limit SpamAssassin's "RCVD_*" DNSBL checks only to
hosts that directly deliver e-mails to our servers, but it seems I'm
missing something in SA documentation (I can hardly believe there is
no such possibility in SA).
