The "official" abbreviations are not very popular, see also

What you really want most probably isn't ESMPTPS - unknown
stranger sends mail, adding encryption won't help you.  You
want "reputation", something telling you that the unknown
stranger is a good guy / new kid / known troublemaker.

For better ideas in this direction see MTAMARK, CSV, and the
HELO part of SPF.   For products in this direction check out
senderbase / ironport / spamcop.
