Does exiscan reject than at smtp time?

Would the only thing needed to active it be adding a data acl like this?

# put headers in all messages (no matter if spam or not)
warn  message = X-Spam-Score: $spam_score ($spam_bar)
      spam = nobody:true
warn  message = X-Spam-Report: $spam_report
      spam = nobody:true

# add second subject line with *SPAM* marker when message
# is over threshold
warn  message = Subject: *SPAM* $h_Subject:
      spam = nobody

# reject spam at high scores (> 12)
deny   message = This message scored $spam_score spam points.
       spam = nobody:true
       condition = ${if >{$spam_score_int}{120}{1}{0}}


respectfully, Joseph
