    I believe that it would be a good idea to add mailspike as an official RBL in the cPanel/WHM SpamAssassin interface, along with SpamCop.

    monitor :: mailspike :: anubisnetworks

    I've heard great things about it and I also tested it myself, and I had no ham emails blocked, while their success rate for spam was superb. It worked really great during the last botnet spam attack a few weeks ago.

    It is very easy to add it manually, just edit your /etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf and add:

    Code:
    header  RCVD_IN_MSPIKE_BL       eval:check_rbl('mspike-lastexternal', 'bl.mailspike.net.')
    tflags  RCVD_IN_MSPIKE_BL       net
    score   RCVD_IN_MSPIKE_BL       5

    Looks like MailSpike can be used via the Exim Custom RBLs also. See usage :: mailspike :: anubisnetworks

    I'm going to add bl.mailspike.net to one of my servers and watch it for a while. Thanks for the tip!

    You may want to post this as a feature request if you would like to see it added as one of the available RBLs:

    I'll follow sneader's lead here and give it a go as well. Simple enough to add to the Custom section here:
    WHM > Service Configuration > Exim Configuration Manager, RBLs tab, Manage Custom RBLS > Manage button.

    Guys, thank you for the responses.

    I am using the SA solution instead of the Exim one, because SA reports the details in the exim_reject and I can clearly see part of the contents of the rejected email. I'm doing this to monitor the rejected emails in case it blocks ham mail.

    The Exim method would just show the remote access being blocked but I would not have any further information about the email that was being transmitted.

    Works really well for me and all my servers. No issues and no false positives so far.
