I am currently in the middle of migrating quite a few DA user accounts over to a new cleanly-installed DA server. I am using SpamBlocker 2, and just would like to verify that the blacklist is working, as I have not had a blacklist hit yet on the domain I moved over as a test yesterday, which is odd.

below is the section for the dns blacklists, is there anything I am missing or that I need to check to ensure that the dns blacklists are being used?

Thanks for your help!

Code:
domainlist use_rbl_domains = lsearch;/etc/virtual/use_rbl_domains
Any domains in /etc/virtual/use_rbl_domains?

Nope, that's a blank file. I compared it with my old server and the old one had it as a symlink to /etc/virtual/domains

symlink created!


Thanks!

A comprehensive free manual tool for checking to see if an IP# is on a blocklist may be found here. Be sure to check your server's main IP# (the one exim uses to send email) and not the IP#, if any, reserved for your domain.
