    Ok, been muxing around with exim.conf again trying to better my spam detection. I added an RBL routine right after accept : in the standard cpanel conf file.

    # Deny mail from listed RBLs before Mailscanner gets it
    deny message = Message rejected because $sender_fullhost is blacklisted at $dnslist_domain see $dnslist_text
      !hosts = +rbl_whitelist
      !domains = +rbl_bypass
      !authenticated = *
      dnslists = : : : :
      log_message = Message denied, $sender_fullhost found in RBL $dnslist_domain
    The white/blacklists are set up at the top of the conf file:
    domainlist rbl_blacklist = lsearch;/etc/rblblacklist
    domainlist rbl_bypass = lsearch;/etc/rblbypass
    hostlist rbl_whitelist = lsearch;/etc/relayhosts : partial-lsearch;/etc/rblwhitelist
    Seemed to be working nicely, but ran into a snag today. My rolling IP on my DSL got changed and lo and behold, the new IP was listed at spamhaus. So it wouldn't let MY mail through the server.

    Question is, why? I have the authenticated line in there, as well as rbl_whitelist - which should be seeing my IP from relayhosts, no? I'm not willing to give up my beautiful RBL blocking without a fight. Anyone see where I went wrong? TIA
