A good email whitelist service?

Can anyone recommend an email whitelist system that works with my existing hosting service? I want to defeat the spam.

The spammers won't stop! Months after switching my address, the penis enlargement ads are rolling in yet again. I've decided I want to switch my incoming personal emails to a whitelist system, which challenges the sender before allowing delivery.
Is there a good whitelist service that will work with my existing domain and my existing hosting? (Currently I have Dreamhost; mail forwarding and multiple accounts are a piece of cake)
Ideally I'd like to forward email sight-unseen from email@example.com to a whitelist service, and it will forward only the trusted emails to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Will I be paying for a good whitelist service, or are there good free options? Any comments, thoughts, or criticisms of the whitelisting approach are welcomed. Might a lot of people not bother with confirmation and give up? Which confirmation methods are list intrusive and most effective?
