We've just released an update to the 4.3.6, 4.4.8, 4.5.6 versions of SpamBlocker.
The RBL entry:
Code:
hostkarma.junkemailfilter.com=127.0.0.2
has been removed.

This was not due to it not working (it did block things just fine), but mostly due to their non-responsiveness to clarify why some IPs are blocked, so client had no recourse as to what they need to change to resolve spam issues. I did some cross-referencing of some hostkarma RBL blocks, and almost all of the time, the listed IPs were also already in the other 4 RBLs already listed, so it was a bit redundant.

If you want to re-add the above entry, you can use this guide to do so:
https://help.directadmin.com/item.php?id=610

eg, step #1 of id=610 would be:
Code:
RBL_DNS_LIST==cbl.abuseat.org : bl.spamcop.net : b.barracudacentral.org : zen.spamhaus.org : hostkarma.junkemailfilter.com=127.0.0.2

Good job! Then I can remove my custom strings file because I already had excluded that hostkarma.junkemailfilter.com list.
