I recommend ecartis instead: http://www.ecartis.org - Been using it for 
years. It's easy to set up, works great, etc. Not sure about how it 
works with qmail, because I use postfix, but I imagine it's pretty much 
the same.

I don't agree with you on your opinion on this btw. Whitelists are a 
dumb way to solve the spam problem regardless of how the list software 
works. If everyone used a whitelist system, no-one would ever see the 
whitelist requests and email would stop working entirely. Increasing the 
hassle for everyone trying to send email simply moves the inconvenience 
of spam away from the recipient and into the lap of every single other 
person sending them mail. I think that's kind of an arrogant way to behave.

I personally like the idea of greylisting, although it has some problems 
that need to be overcome before it really takes off, but it's a good 
idea. For details see here: http://projects.puremagic.com/greylisting/
