RBL Listings

DCc, pyzor and razor are digest tests, and as such aren't considered RBLs
(not really checked through the DNS system, among other things).

If you get unacceptable FPs in MS, simply don't use that BL in MS, use it
for points in SA only. But if the digests fire _and_ your BL... It sure
looks like spam, no?! You've looked at the content, I gather?

Recently I've had a number of false positives on mail from google (not
necessarily gmail).  It's all in the 209.85.161.X range.  Specifically,,, and  Is anyone else seeing this?

It consistantly scores very low but is clobbered because I had the "Spam
lists to be spam = 1".  I'm using Spamhaus-xen and spamcop.net.  When I test
the addresses at places like anti-abuse.org or mxtoolbox.com they don't show
up in any RBLs.  I've changed to "Spam lists to be spam = 2" which should
help w/the false positives, but may increase the spam that gets through.

Also, does being listed in DCC, pyzor, or razor constitute an RBL from a
MailScanner perspective?  I use them in spamassassin, but they aren't listed
in the spamlist in MailScanner.conf.
