Sorry, not sure what happened there.

Thanks for a wonderful program!

I'm looking at an HTML e-mail containing
<td background=3D"5%" rowspan=3D"5">
SpamAssassin appears to consider that the "5%" might be a URI, and is looking up in all configured URIDNSBLs.

(I'm testing this by removing 'background=3D"5%' from the e-mail, and goes away from the list of URIs in spamassassin -d -D -t < email.eml)

Are there really any HTML engines that will try loading a background from (in which case SpamAssassin is perfectly justified in checking it)?

Otherwise, not checking would take a bit of unnecessary load off the URIBLS.

Pretty sure not an issue anymore, closing.
