If you use razor or pyzor, check your server lists are up to date. There is
a "server discovery" command in each of these packages I believe, you will
find it in the docs for those packages.

In spam.assassin.prefs.conf, keep the rbl_timeout figure fairly small (10
or 15 seconds?) so that MS doesn't kill SA just because SA is waiting for
an RBL lookup.
