Well, what this does is a lookup to each of those RBL sites and uses them to determine whether or not something is spam.

Just do a google search for any of those lines and you'll quickly get an idea of what they are used for. The zeros mean they are disabled anyhow, so I could very well remove those lines and possibly speed up SA just a little, but I'm not too worried about it.

Hey.... my bad... someone just corrected me. You need those lines in there because Osirusoft has closed its doors and now returns "true" for all queries, meaning it will flag everything as spam, so by setting those to zero it doesn't add any points to the message. The spamcop one is actually doing a check, and is responsible for slowing down SA just a little, but not terribly much. Like I said.... rblsmtpd is the key to happiness. You can stop all your spam from ever getting into your system at all by blocking it at the SMTP conversation. Just search this site for a thread I participated in with Apollo77 where we discussed all the ins and outs of rblsmtpd and how it can make your life better. Apollo turned me onto it a while back and I think it's wonderful!
