Not all Tor servers are listed in SORBS. I believe, the listing in
SORBS depends not on SMTP exit rules. The listed server have mostly
the message: "infected by unknown trojan/virus".

So I think, they have seen/watched a bot communication via Tor.
(may be, via IRC, I am not sure).

I changed the ExitPolicity of my node and it was delisted half a year
ago. The ports 465 and 587 were open since Dez. 2007 and SORBS did not
list my server again.
