    Lets say I have a list of 5 rbl's. With postfix, I can assign a weight to each one and then reject the email if the email reaches a particular combined score. How can I accomplish this with exim?

    No native feature with cPanel/WHM will allow you to combine your custom RBLs and generate a score based on their combined usage. Feel free to open a feature request for this via:

    You could also pursue a custom Exim rule via the Exim-User's mailing list at:

    Thank you.

    Hi - by coincidence I fell over a super great RBL that has made me very happy....


    Because it has made my incoming spam drop to almost zero and because my mailservers has a much easier load now.

    Previously I have used 3-4 RBL DNSBL on each mailserver, now I have narrowed it down to only two, just by implementing this new and highly effective spamkiller:

    Protected Sky RBL - RBL (Protected Sky)

    It is completely free to use and as far as I can see, it hasn´t produced one single false positive in the month it has been running and it doesnt suffer from 'indedegestion' at all...

    I have been using almost all RBL´s outthere, but none so effective as

    Try it - you´ll be very surprised if you compare you logs with before and after implementing Protected Sky

    Be sure to only use 1 or 2 RBL´s as your mailserver might get choked using more than 2 effective RBL´s - I use and - it takes care of most spam and virus infected mail
