Hi all, the logs are showing follwing line

Sep 4 11:38:17 antispam2 postfix/qmgr[803436]: CA24F633E1: from=<>, size=988404, nrcpt=1 (queue active)
Sep 4 11:38:19 antispam2 pmg-smtp-filter[2071614]: 635DC64F5A58A48E6F: block mail to <> (rule: Blacklist)
When I check the "blacklist" within the UI i cant find any Domain or Emailadress that matches.

So what i want to know is there any cli command to find the blacklist entry and remove it ?

How would you resolve it ?
I aprreciate any hint..

Thanks in adavnce.
please share your 'Blacklist' rule and object - maybe the sending IP is listed there - or you have a regular expression that matches ....

else - you can check the contents of the blacklist - with either `pmgdb dump` (whole ruleset) or with `pmgsh` - see{ogroup}/objects
However in most cases this does not really offer more insight than the GUI...
