    fyi..

    I was getting SMTP timeout errors on my mail server. turns out the server was not getting responses back from some of the RBLS and the delay for checking each one was causing the mail client to timeout...

    Here are the ones I had to remove (the website appears to be down as well)...

    brazil.blackholes.us :\
    nigeria.blackholes.us :\
    argentina.blackholes.us :\
    malaysia.blackholes.us :\
    singapore.blackholes.us :\
    taiwan.blackholes.us :\


    Hope this helps someone else...

    The blackholes.us site has been going up and down lately ...

    Last week, I just copied all their zone files before they went down again
    and setup my own dns blacklist on my Cpanel server! It was fairly easy
    to do and actually works great!

    For bandwidth reasons, I really don't want anyone to directly use my
    blackholes.us RBL clone but I will let you copy the data file that
    I used to create our own local dns blacklist server. This file is normally
    freely downloadable from the blackholes.us site whenever they are
    actually online which is getting more rare lately.

    http://www.clubhost.us/blackholes.tar.bz2

    (original file source: blackholes.us)

    That file provides all the data you need to setup your own blacklist
    with the exact same list information as "blackholes.us"

    I just found this post and I have been using blackholes as well.
    Is there any way you can share how you got it to work ?

    Thanks

    I had the same problem. Removing the entries fixed the issue. It's too bad exim/cpanel/etc can't just skip the check if it takes too long.
