How to check whether spam protection based on spamhaus.org blacklists is working
Make sure that the option "Switch on spam protection based on DNS blackhole lists DNS zones for DNSBL service" is enabled in mail server settings.
Try to send mail to the following email addresses from the server you need to test:
email@example.com- for SBL testing
firstname.lastname@example.org- for PBL testing
email@example.com- for XBL testing
Check whether mail got bounced back with message alike:
554 The IP Address of the sender (22.214.171.124) was found in a DNS blacklist database and was therefore refused.
The similar can be observed in the
Jul 5 15:20:15 servername postfix/smtpd: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from ns1.crynwr.com[126.96.36.199]: 554 5.7.1 Service unavailable; Client host [188.8.131.52] blocked using b.barracudacentral.org; Client host blocked using Barracuda Reputation, see http://www.barracudanetworks.com/reputation/?r=1&ip=184.108.40.206; from=<firstname.lastname@example.org> to=<email@example.com> proto=SMTP helo=<pdam.crynwr.com>
If you will see that the message from sender
firstname.lastname@example.org from IP address
220.127.116.11are blocked, then spam protection based on
spamhaus.orgblackhole lists is working fine.
