Strange URI Blocked

Post by dturbo » 06 Sep 2016 17:33

Hey,

I am getting the old classic URIBL_BLOCKED The query to URIBL was blocked. See http://wiki.apache.org/spamassassin/Dns ... nsbl-block for more information.

I think it is because I am stuck in an environment where I cannot go direct to the internet (suits me - safer) and I am using a forwarding server in my parent company, which in turn can send the request on to an internet based DNS server, however this is a large ISP server which will be issuing the request to URIBL, so I get blocked.

Any solution for me ?

Cheers
Craig

As long as you are relying on <major isp's> dns servers, you'll be stuck with this problem. You might as well turn off the dns rbl lookups.

The solution is to run your own caching dns server that queries the rbl's directly.
