I believe the ordb dnslists are not free anymore, but that is upto you to go and find out. Perhaps you already did. I use the following dnslists: spamhaus.relays.osirusoft.com : spamsites.relays.osirusoft.com : \ dialups.relays.osirusoft.com : socks.relays.osirusoft.com : \ opm.blitzed.org : sbl.spamhaus.org : proxies.blackholes.easynet.nl I use Exim, not Sendmail, so I do not know how to test, but suppose you have a different box, you can temporarily assign the IP to it, then to telnet -s 220.127.116.11 ip_of_sendmail_box 25 Then simulate a mail transaction and see what the sendmail says in the log... -Wash -- Odhiambo Washington <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> "The box said 'Requires Wananchi Online Ltd. www.wananchi.com Windows 95, NT, or better,' Tel: +254 2 313985-9 +254 2 313922 so I installed FreeBSD."
