a similar angle of view as compared to my initial one (saving bandwith, 
ressources etc.)...
thanks for the comments who have born some new ideas in my head and may save 
me some time and efforts in the future, e.g.
# pflog:
Oct 09 07:22:06.280840 rule 11/0(match): block in on wl0: > 
thum.ath.cx.smtp: S (src OS: Windows 2000, Windows XP) 657166243:657166243(0) 
win 64800 <mss 1400,nop,nop,sackOK> (DF)
results from rule 11:
@11 block drop in log quick on wl0 proto tcp from <bport25:26> to any port = 
  [ Evaluations: 192       Packets: 3         Bytes: 144         States: 0   ]
so I can make this rule (for PDL also :- ) a bit smarter:
pass in proto tcp from any os "OpenBSD" to any port 25 flags S/SA
more diplomatic (Dragonfly still excluded):
 pass in log quick proto tcp from any os "*BSD" to any port 25 flags S/SA
well - also not the ultimate brillant idea since i had pf used in the past to 
block connections from the mailing list openbsd.de; spamd was working as a 
spam forwarder...

this may vary from country to region; I'll have to dig a bit more into PDL...
regards and a nice weekend for all readers :-
