Okay, I'll change it to /24 then.

Well, in that case, I probably shouldn't even go down this route then.  I'm
just trying to get my spam count (reaching my mailbox at least) back down to
zero, where it's been for what must be years now (with a combination of DCC
bulk + DCC greylisting).  I had been getting 25+ spams a day passing both of
the above, but it seems to have trailed off as of late.
