Assuming you're talking about inbound emails and wondering why more mails
aren't being caught by RBLs.

It depends on the domains hosted on the box (age and overall exposure),
what RBLs you employ and, crucially, the order in which your MTA processes
things - i.e. does the address check occur before the RBL tests etc.

If you could provide more details, I'm sure the answers will be more
