[SOLVED] URIBL have stopped working (dns ok)


Renowned Member

Dear Proxmox community,
I run a cluster of two subscribed PMG in HA.
A few days ago I started receiving spam mails that contained addresses reported in uribl
I noticed that it no longer appears in the headers URIBL_ABUSE_SURBL and URIBL_BLACK so I think it's a spamassassin related problem (on both nodes)
A few days before the problem I updated from PMG 7.1 to latest with spamassassin 4 but I'm sure it worked well for at least two days.
I have a similar situation to the user g00gle who wrote this thread:
RBL checks are enabled and I run my (tested) dns resolver on both nodes
Can you help me to debug and find the problem as I'm not a spamassassin expert?
Thank you
can you post the eml file of such a message and the log when you got it?
Yes, I removed some personal data, thank you

i checked, and none of the urls in the email are listed on either uribl.com or surbl.org, so it's expected that spamassassin does not report it ?
you are right, now uribl are working and i receive only few spam mails.
Don't know how but it's solved now... I just rebooted both nodes :-D
Thank you
