Could someone please tell me about How MS Exchange fights against spam.

I have experienced Mdaemon server setup. It could use DNS records checks (existance of ptr record, accordination of peer ip address with HELO address dns record, etc.), it could make a delay of data transmitting (spamers MUST send billions of letters, they could not wait for half of a minute to server respond).
