Re: What is that rbl Eric?

Sorry, didn't read my mail right away. My spamstats currently look like:

Spam blocked since May 11 04:05:00:

bl.spamcop.net          5443
list.dsbl.org           1828
www.spamlist.org        1738
sbl.spamhaus.org         793
Local rules              408
relays.ordb.org           64
Total                  10274
Total messages         38591
27% of all mail blocked.

bl.spamcop was always the highest. list.dsbl.org was the one I added
during the last meeting, and was what was showing highest in Steves's
listing. Relays.ordb.org hasn't caught anything new in a couple of weeks,
but then it is listed last in my sendmail.m4. My local rules are mostly
just when I get mad at a particular spammer and add them to my
/etc/mail/access file.

We have had a problem with some legitimate mail being blocked by 
list.dsbl.org. We had a teacher whose home account was with a local ISP in 
Beardstown blocked from us. Other spam-blocking services didn't show that 
ISP as having an open relay but list.dsbl.org did.
