I have entries in my MAPS blacklist for spam.dnsrbl.net and dun.dnsrbl.net, but of the 1,867 emails in my SpamFilter quarantine because of MAPS BL results, 0 are from either of the dnsrbl.net lists.

I tried to find the correct web page hosted by dnsrbl.net, and none of the following seem to work:
http://dnsrbl.net
http://spam.dnsrbl.net
http://dun.dnsrbl.net
http://www.dnsrbl.net

Is it completely gone?

Just to tack-on to my last post... I used this comprehensive blacklist lookup tool, and when I searched for "dnsrbl" on the page... it shows the SPAM and DUN lists as being "dead":
http://www.dnsstuff.com/tools/ip4r.ch?ip=209.130.174.81

...So I can at least say that - for now - both lists are dead.  Could they ever be back up?  Is it worth it for them to still be included in the SpamFilter default configuration?

These are what I use:

sbl-xbl.spamhaus.org
dnsbl.sorbs.net
bl.spamcop.net
dnsbl.njabl.org

Along with our own.

Thanks Desp, that's good to know.  BTW, today I just switched from using dnsbl.njabl.org to using combined.njabl.org - which is dnsbl.njabl.org + dynablock.njabl.org.  I'll be watching my MAPS results for false-positives like a hawk, because I don't know how aggresive dynablock is.

To quote http://njabl.org/dynablock.html:

Since dynablock is much more inclusive/aggressive/complete than the dynamic listings in dnsbl.njabl.org, we decided not to potentially surprise lots of dnsbl.njabl.org users by importing it into dnsbl.njabl.org.
