One of our hosts got blacklisted in SpamHaus, thanks to one reseller. So we wanted to disable RBL rules in exim. I have disabled RBL in exim's config in WHM, but still in exim_rejectlog we are getting a lot of such records:

2008-10-23 08:53:32 H=(7430d6f8c2ed4ae) [211.189.237.128] F=<[email protected]> rejected RCPT <[email protected]>: "Jun
kMail rejected - (7430d6f8c2ed4ae) [211.189.237.128] is in an RBL, see http://www.spamhaus.org/query/bl?ip=211.189.237.128"


We disabled RBL yesterday, restarted exim several times.. Is there anything missing or hidden?

Anton.

Bit of lateral thinking, why not get yourself off the RBL? That's the real fix.

Then turn on SMTP tweak, or install CSF, and limit outgoing emails per hour to something like 150. Then you'll never have this problem again!

I'm just wondering; perhaps you're not using WHM's RBL stuff but have something hardcoded into the exim config files?
