Description wyrm.white 2013-04-29 10:26:07 UTC
Spamassassin uses dnsbl.njabl.org, but dnsbl.njabl.org is empty and is going to close down for good very soon (visit their site for proofs).
All notices of this RBL should be erased from SA rules.

I had to manually add string
score __RCVD_IN_NJABL 0
into local.cf file, this resolved the case.

Please confirm you're using SA 3.2.5 which is obsolete and unsupported.

Please run :

spamassassin -V

SA 3.2.5 is 6 years old and unsupported.

Yet still listed on https://spamassassin.apache.org/downloads.cgi as if it were reasonable to use.  And I think no indication anywhere on the website that it's not a good idea?

Agreed.  It's a problem that we need someone to work on but too many fish to fry.  Anyone want to help change the website to svnpubsub and make some updates?

http://wiki.apache.org/spamassassin/ReleaseGoals is the only place that I believe reflects the outdatedness of 3.2.5.
