There are two packages that I know of that can be used for creating your own RBL:

rbldns and RBLDNSD

As for notifying IP addresses, I think you will have to do a bit of custom programming/scripting to get that to work. I would think that the best thing to do would be to automate a WHOIS on the IP and pull the contact information and then send an email to that address.

Why do you want to create a database of your own? Most of them have public databases. You can use any one of those and check against them.

Public databases only send email to IP owners.
I want to use this for my users and inform then through email notification that the IP is blocked in rbl due to spamming.
