  • URIBL_BLOCKED ADMINISTRATOR NOTICE: The query to URIBL was blocked.

    I rely on Spamassassin running on my linux VPS (cpanel) to keep spam under control.

    I have noticed more spam getting through in the last few weeks and today noticed this in an email header.

    Code:
    URIBL_BLOCKED          ADMINISTRATOR NOTICE: The query to URIBL was blocked.
    See ttp://wiki.apache.org/spamassassin/DnsBlocklists#dnsbl-block for more information.
    On looking at a number of email headers it seems that the block occured between the 5th and 7th of Nov 2013.

    I've queried from my VPS
    Code:
    # host -t TXT 2.0.0.127.multi.uribl.com
    and the result is
    Code:
    2.0.0.127.multi.uribl.com descriptive text "127.0.0.1 -> Query Refused. See ttp://uribl.com/refused.shtml for more information [Your DNS IP: 217.112.88.90]"
    The DNS server IP that is being blocked is 217.112.88.90 (dns2.poundhost.com). Can this be fixed please.

    Hi!

    Can you make the following settings in your VM such that "/etc/resolv.conf" file in your VM displays the below data:

    [email protected] [~]# cat /etc/resolv.conf
    nameserver 4.4.4.4
    nameserver 208.67.222.222


    It seems URIBL is blocking even few other DNS servers, eg: Google's 8.8.8.8 too is blocked.
