    Sure such services are possiible and exist with nearly all mail service providers. But this is highly unrelated to DNS what OpenDNS is in business for.

    You woudn't ask your car repair shop to expand their business also offering laundry cleaning and TV repair, would you? ;-)

    At least, you can get a T-shirt from OpenDNS... https://community.opendns.com/merch/
    But this is apparently the only non-DNS related service they offer. LOL

    "Do No Evil" Google has already mastered anti-spam filtering. Route your email through them.... Works for me!

    I probably should point out that these forums continue to be spam plagued... so, OpenDNS may not be your best spam filtering solution :)

    Ha ha, that's true, but I've noticed they've cleaned the forums up a lot. It looks much better!

    As mentioned by rotblitz and cervezafria, this goes well outside the core competency of OpenDNS.  While some anti-spam solutions leverage DNS for Realtime Blackhole List (RBL) look-ups, DNS is just the transport, the actual information is being gathered by hundreds of companies, users, network administrators, researchers, etc before being correlated, reviewed, and eventually listed.
