I would suggest you consider bumping up the score for URIBL_BLACK to something
like 4 or maybe higher (I have it at 6 on our MS installations). Looking back at
a history of 1.5 million emails total in our MW database (60 days), URIBL_BLACK
has hit 149068, of which 35 (0.02%) were FP's. Please note that I am using
emails hitting URIBL_BLACK and were quarantined, and then subsequently released
from quarantine to calculate FP's.

Hi Again:

Sorry Hostmaster for some reason I my gmail didnt allow to me to reply to your
message so I am replying on my own thread

First of all thanks for the quick response

Now Regarding your concerns

Yes i use URIBL

Below are the scores I have in my SpamAssassin

score URIBL_AB_SURBL 0 1.613 0 1.860 # n=0 n=2
score URIBL_JP_SURBL 0 2.857 0 1.501 # n=0 n=2
score URIBL_OB_SURBL 0 2.132 0 1.500 # n=0 n=2
score URIBL_PH_SURBL 0 2.035 0 1.787 # n=0 n=2
score URIBL_RHS_DOB 0 0.901 0 1.083 # n=0 n=2
score URIBL_SBL 0 2.468 0 1.499 # n=0 n=2
score URIBL_SC_SURBL 0 2.523 0 0.474 # n=0 n=2
score URIBL_WS_SURBL 0 2.100 0 1.500 # n=0 n=2
score URIBL_BLACK 0 1.961 0 1.955 # n=0 n=2

Do you  think I need to adjust ??

The message was tagged with URIBL_BLACK with score 1.96, it was also tagged with
some other scores, but it did not pass 6 and many other like this one only get a
score bwetween 2-5.

I use spamhaus-zen and CBL as my RBL lists
