I don't use SA, I use XWall for Exchange and can't set the score of a
SURBL... So I only have the choice to mark the subject or just send a DSN.
Right now I send a DSN  b/c it's useless to forward the spams to the
individuals IMHO. 

I'm not sure what you mean about "Confirmation emails would contain links to
your own domain."

Actually I'm a spam killer ninja (jr that is)

Greetings Paul,
	SURBL should block NONE of these. (Well we don't block anything, we
flag, but you know what I mean.) We whitelist airlines. Confirmation emails
would contina links to your own domain. You are not a spammer, are you? If
you aren't, you won't get listed. If it is an order from to your company it
is the same. 

You can always lower the score of SURBL and try it out if you are worried.
But you will be VERY happy with it. 4 out of 5 Dentists approve of SURBL.
But we don't count the fifth one, because his parents were cousins ;)
