Be careful with using the Spamcop blacklist to reject messages -- while it
is perfectly fine as a blacklist to use in a scoring scheme such as
SpamAssassin, I found it to have too many false positives to use it for
outright blocking.

If you use it for blocking, then you should consider complimenting your
setup with a whitelist _on the MTA level_.
