Re: Which DNSBL was bad again?

Oh, I know spews. Arrogant jerks they were.

In fact, this has come up because I was experimenting with
untangle/spamassassin. Looks like the default DNSBL it uses is zen. I was
worried I'd be blocking legitimate email, but it doesn't really matter. I
put the bridge on the lower MX record anyway and nothing should be going
there but spam.
