Great news, Holly! I'm a firm believer in spamhaus...but wouldn't touch spamcop at all. (Look at my previous, uhh, rants on the subjects.) :-)
But yes, generally you try to never accept email which you don't intend to deliver.

Thanks to all of you who helped me enable RBL (even though ORDB says
it's a dying strategy).
I started with just one server - the spamhaus one that we've been
discussing. I thought I'd share the results with you, to nudge on
others who have been reluctant. Since I flipped the switch, my Guardian
logs reflect an average of over 7000/hour being rejected before they
ever enter my system. That's 168,000 messages per day that my Guardian
system won't have to process. Holy moly.
I sure hope they're all "good". Time will tell.
