    Can I put my list of rbl's (bl.spamcop.net, etc etc) right into the blacklist_from fields, or is that only for specific addresses? I don't understand where I'm supposed to put the rbl addresses.

    Thanks

    As far as i know, spamassassin already has a list of DNSBL's and uses those by default. The best place to go for further info would be the spamassassin web site.

    I believe that spamcop is not enabled by default (check with the spamassassin site)

    Try these examples for spamcop and spamhaus

    Code:
    skip_rbl_checks 0
    rbl_timeout 3
    score RCVD_IN_BL_SPAMCOP_NET 3
    score RCVD_IN_URIBL_SBL 3
    This sets any rbl blocked ips at the score 3 .. then the score will increase as per normal rules etc, this just makes any domains in the rbl more likely to be tagged as spam.
