You could get your toes wet by "accept *:80, accept *:443, reject *:*".
That would let people browse the web through you, which is very useful,
while somewhat reducing the variety of abuse complaints you might get.

Then if it goes well for a while, you could open up a few more ports.

Also, if later your ISP decides that it's getting too much mail and asks
you to quit it, you can tell them about the time you allowed only web
browsing and they didn't mind -- then you have something to fall back
to that isn't just being a non-exit.
