It does. There are still some old complaints by MediaSentry and BayTSP 
being forwarded, but the timestamp clearly show dates before I changed 
exit policy.

Other than that, I have recieved a few SpamCop reports, most of them 
about spam being sent through HTTP/Webmail, but two recent ones about 
spam being sent through ESMTP, eg:

Received: from livmgfm ( [])
	by (MUA/Third Party Client Interface) with 
ESMTPA id 54B3FE000091 for <x>; Mon, 28 Jun 2010 19:36:22 -0400 (EDT)

Fortunately, SpamCop uses my direct contact address now instead of going 
through my ISP.

I will soon set up a (b)log about all incidents. I'll also talk to a 
lawyer (and friend of mine) if I am allowed to publish all complaints.
