I am trying to setup the SEM-FRESH10 RBL from Spam Eating Monkey Realtime Reputation Service which will block all emails from domains registered in the last 10 days.

I have added the details to the Manage Custom RBLs section of the Exim Manager.

I have then enabled the RBL

but I am still getting spam email from newly registered domains.

The RBL works, as if I run dig slidereduce.cam.fresh10.spameatingmonkey.net it correctly returns 127.0.0.2 which means it's on the list.

Am I supposed to register 127.0.0.2 on a blacklist somewhere? I cannot find where.

Thanks

Hey hey! I'm not totally sure on this one since we don't support that specific RBL, but there are some additional details on setting this up in cPanel here:


that could be helpful for this configuration.

Thanks. I have it all setup the same so I think it should work. This is the second RBL i've tried that doesn't seem to work. I will see if my previous support request will take a look.

Thank you for your update, @ddaddy .

Looking over the ticket, I see we were able to identify the failures being due to rbl queries being blocked, as noted in the SpamAssassin rule notes of message headers.

Please let us know if we may be of further assistance.
