BitDefender Free Antispam for Mail Servers (FRAMS) with Sendmail

I have been using several email blacklists on a CentOS 7 server where I use Sendmail to handle email. The blacklists, aka blocklists, I've been employing are DNS-based Blackhole Lists (DNSBLs). A DNSBL is a list of IP addresses known to be associated with the transmission of spam. The ones I've been using are listed below:

I configured Sendmail to use those blacklists by putting the following lines in /etc/mail/sendmail.mc:

FEATURE(`blacklist_recipients')dnl
FEATURE(`dnsbl', `sbl.spamhaus.org', `550 Spam Block: mail from $&{client_addr} refused - See http://www.spamhaus.org/sbl/')dnl
FEATURE(`dnsbl', `psbl.surriel.com', `550 Spam Block: mail from $&{client_addr} refused - see http://psbl.surriel.com/')dnl
FEATURE(`dnsbl',`dnsbl.sorbs.net',`550 Spam Block: mail from $&{client_addr} refused - see http://dnsbl.sorbs.net/')dnl
FEATURE(`dnsbl',`dnsrbl.swinog.ch',`550 Spam Block: mail from $&{client_addr} refused - see http://antispam.imp.ch/spamikaze/remove.php')dnl
FEATURE(`enhdnsbl', `bl.spamcop.net', `"Spam blocked see: http://spamcop.net/bl.shtml?"$&{client_addr}', `t')dnl

If you add those lines to the Sendmail configuration file, you need to regenerate /etc/mail/sendmail.cf with the command m4 /etc/mail/sendmail.mc > /etc/mail/sendmail.cf. Then restart sendmail with service sendmail restart.

Still, despite those multiple anti-spam blacklists, a lot of spam is getting through to accounts on the mail server. So I decided to install Free Antispam for Mail Servers (FRAMS) from Bitdefender, which describes the software thusly:

Bitdefender Free Antispam for Mail Servers provides essential features for increased productivity in any organization by blocking spam on Linux-based mail servers. Bitdefender's award winning antispam engines provide antiphishing, content and attachment filtering. It's extremely easy to install and administrators have an easy to use web-based interface and powerful command line management.
