IMO, it's almost a full time job (personal experience doing it for
about 2 years).
The biggest headache is dealing with the support at the various RBL.
There are many inexpensive providers; email messaging is their "core"
competency. I would suggest let them handle it unless you want to
enter this domain for a living.
Nowadays, I use a smart host relay for outgoing messages and for
incoming messages, a MX pointing to a service provider.
