    Hi,

    I am trying to setup a few Custom RBL's to combat incoming email spam (WHM >> Exim Configuration >> RBL's >> Manage) - however they don't seem to be scoring emails according to the custom rbl's. I'm not sure if this feature is only intended to just Reject mail?

    Hello,

    The custom RBLs enabled through WHM are configured directly with Exim, and are not included in the SpamAssassin configuration for use in scoring emails.

    Thank you.

    Thank you for your quick response - may I ask:

    1. Is there a feature via WHM to include these RBL's currently for SpamAssassin? Or do I need to simply edit the local.conf for SpamAssassin to include the RBL's.
    2. Are the RBL's mentioned above only intended for Rejecting mail only?

    Hello,

    You would need to modify the local.cf SpamAssassin configuration file. SpamAssassin documents which type of black lists are supported at:

    Thank you.
