    Has anybody successfully used the Exim configuration editor to implement RBL spam blocking. If so, how did you accomplish this? I would appreciate and example.

    You have to use the SSH to have them configured correctly. Search for "Exim Tweaks" here and you will find a post with how to use the dnslist (RBL are replaced with dnslist in Exim 4)

    They should be written just under
    require verify = sender

    You can find more information in the topic I told you about.

    Yea, I am aware of the ssh method. I was wondering if there was a way to use the Exim Configuration Editor to do it to prevent my changes from being overwritten.

    It's a good question, Marty, and one I'm trying to figure out myself. A couple of attempts have just kicked back a syntax error and mulitple instances of Exim try to start running. I don't think it shuts down / restarts Exim correctly and had to do it manually.

    Still having to do edits manually as well, until I get more time for a detailed look at this.
