Well.... Nope tcpserver is typically so easy I haven't gone back to read the
documentation. Guess it is about time I do since things are getting a bit
tricky now.

Couldn't tell from your document whether it was a comment or not. The # sign
isn't globally used by all applications. For instance try using it with
Bind. Not a pretty sight.  Maybe replacing "use the 5th line instead of the
fourth" with "use the 5th line instead of the fourth by uncommenting it"
would help give the viewer the impression that that # is actually a comment.

Yes I fully understand the ramifications. will allow the
Inter7 lists to come through else they won't, =:allow opens the gate wide,
then :allow,RBLSMTPD="-Blocked - comment" locks out anybody that doesn't
have a reverse dns entry with a permanent error.

We are not worried about servers without a reverse lookup. I saw the post
about breaking ones email server on purpose {ridiculous}. Actually the one
without the reverse name lookup would be the broken one in my opinion. Not
that Ken has a broken server I am sure he has a good reason just not sure
what that reason is. Perhaps he left it that way so we can test the reverse
name lookup modification, yah thats it!
