    Posted: 11 June 2003 at 10:04am

I just subscribed to MAPS LLC's RBL+ service. They gave me a zone name to perform lookups against, and I've entered it into my list of MAPS Servers. It doesn't seem to work.  I've e-mailed them, and they said ..

zonename.mail-abuse.org is the name of the zone, not a host - it contains A
records, it does not have one. We have 3 DNS servers that are authoratative
for this zone. You can query against the zone by performing nslookups like:

nslookup 2.0.0.127.rbl-plus.mail-abuse.org

The answer you will receive is 127.1.0.5

My question to Logsat is does Spamfilter perform lookups in this format? How does the entire MAPS lookup proccess work with Spamfilter?

Wouldn't setting it to false disable it? If not, what is the purpose of setting it to false?

Don't know why but that is how is works.  You turn it off by commenting it out.

Setting the dnsbl to False DOES NOT disable it.  It tells the SpamFiltr APP that the zone format is the reverse of a normal dnsbl. ... meaning the IP is in the "forward" direction. Most dnsbl's use a reverse direction because the zone file is easier to understand and to query.

example: if the ip you are looking up is 209.140.81.18, the NORMAL (or True) setting will do a lookup as follows:

nslookup 18.81.140.209.relays.ordb.org
