    Going bonkers!

    MailScanner.conf has been correctly configured. The SpamAssassin and virus scanner options work great.

    However, I'm having real problems with DNSBL checking.

    The line spamchecks is set to 'yes'.

    The lines
    # IP BLACKLIST
    # This is the list of spam blacklists (RBLs) which you are using.
    # See the "Spam List Definitions" file for more information about what
    # you can put here.
    # This can also be the filename of a ruleset.

    is configured as follows:
    Spam List = NJABL SPAMCOP SBL LISTDSBL ABUSEAT ORDB-RBL CRYNWR

    The abbreviations for the above are declared in 'spam.lists.conf' as follows:
    NJABL dnsbl.njabl.org
    SPAMCOP bl.spamcop.net
    SBL sbl.spamhaus.org
    LISTDSBL list.dsbl.org
    ABUSEAT cbl.abuseat.org
    ORDB-RBL relays.ordb.org
    CRYNWR sbl.crynwr.com

    This is where the fun starts - Everything works fine. Don't get any errors or alerts.

    However, all incoming mail is passed without any DNSBL checks. Using the sbl.crynwr.com for checking fails too.

    Any ideas, please?

    Kind regards

    Go on, have a guess
    You need dots at the end of the RBL's ;)
    Code:
    NJABL dnsbl.njabl.org.
    SPAMCOP bl.spamcop.net.
    SBL sbl.spamhaus.org.
    LISTDSBL list.dsbl.org.
    ABUSEAT cbl.abuseat.org.
    ORDB-RBL relays.ordb.org.
    CRYNWR sbl.crynwr.com.

    Just had a thought. I don't think that test will work. Because of the way exim and MailScanner work, the email is accepted by the SMTP server and it looks like it is delivered, MailScanner then processes it and bounces if you so instruct (I'd recommend not setting it to bounce, but to delete instead). It could well be working just fine.
