I've been trying to figure this out on my own by looking over the exim documentation but the answer is eluding me. I am using the Spamblocker 2.0 Release config file.

In it is this entry...

Code:
# deny using email address in blacklist_senders
  deny message = Email blocked by BSAL - to unblock send an email to notjunk@oppco.org 
  domains = use_rbl_domains 
  deny senders = +blacklist_senders
I'm just curious as to what the difference is between "domains = use_rbl_domains" and "domains = +use_rbl_domains" (the latter seems to be used almost everywhere else in the config file).

I'm trying to (at least somewhat) understand the exim.conf file format and just don't get the difference between the + being there and not being there.

Any illumination would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
