Default Block all mail, access from certain countries using ipdeny.com data

To try to decrease the flood of spam traffic (inbound e-mail, primarily, but also any other access from certain countries), I was told that I can configure my server to reject anything from certain countries.

For example, suppose I want to block all e-mail and access from IP addresses in China or Nigeria.

I have read some articles (e.g., How to Block All Email from a Country), but I want to make sure that however I do this, that it is an approach that is appropriate to use with ISPConfig.

By the way, it would be nice if ISPConfig had a feature that helps server maintainers do this. It is got to be one of the most painful aspects of server operation and I'm sure most all server operators would be grateful if ISPConfig could help them more directly.

Can anyone please provide some direction so that I can stop the flood of SPAM and other wasteful access?
