I also allow 465 and 563. Those are used by authenticated SMTPS and
So far, I have not received any spam abuse complaints from them, after
running a 10Mbit+ exit for the past 2-3 years (though I do occasionally
get web spam abuse complaints).

There's also the chat ports: 1863 (MSN), 5190 (aim), 5050 (yahoo), 5222-
5223 (xmpp/gchat). Those haven't given me any problems either.
