    I have installed protected sky RBL. (psky.me)
    I must say it helps catching a lot of spam mails that were going thru.

    Protected Sky seems to have 3 kind of responses to a RBL query:
    1) Not Listed
    2) Likely SPAM
    3) Very Likely SPAM.

    Is there a way to DEFER the Likely SPAM and REJECT the Very Likely spam?

    Hello :)

    Does it identify the response type in the message header? If so, you could setup a filter that completes a specific action based on the information in the header.

    Thank you.

    Below is a grep from Exim's rejectlog
    Code:
    2016-01-05 12:01:24 H=mta1.higherthanever.biz (higherthanever.biz) [69.64.49.80]:37151 F=<mail@higherthanever.biz> rejected RCPT <xxxxxxx@xxxxxx.com>: "JunkMail rejected - mta1.higherthanever.biz (higherthanever.biz) [69.64.49.80]:37151 is in an RBL, see Bad Reputation. See http://psky.me?69.64.49.80"
    2016-01-05 13:34:06 H=fox2-257.ds.buenassorpresas.com [185.121.15.252]:49622 F=<bounce@ds.buenassorpresas.com> rejected RCPT <xxxxxx@xxxxxx.com>: "JunkMail rejected - fox2-257.ds.buenassorpresas.com [185.121.15.252]:49622 is in an RBL, see Poor Reputation. See http://psky.me?185.121.15.252"
    So it does seem to make the difference between "Bad" and "Poor" in the response
    To be honest I am bit clueless to where to start implementing filters
