Who does RBL checks - MailScanner or SpamAssassin?

Best to do it SA, then it adds to the scores. 

I turn most of them off by giving a zero score in my
spam.assassin.prefs.conf, only keeping a couple RBLs to reduce DNS lookup
time and false positives.

AS Jules says the other network tests (DCC etc) are switchable individually
as these aren't RBLs!
