URIBL not working?

I received an email containing a blacklisted url (in dbl.spamhaus.org).
I thought spamassassin is always check dbl.spamhaus.org by default but there is not even a report in the headers telling me it contains a blacklisted uri.

How do I make proxmox mail gateway check for blacklisted uri's and assign a score and/or block the mails?

Strangly, when I do "cat mail.msg | spamassassin -D 2>&1 | grep URIBL" it does tell me "2.5 URIBL_DBL_SPAM Contains a spam URL listed in the Spamhaus DBL".

So spamassassin is able to detect it but proxmox mail gateway wasn't?

check your settings under Configuration -> Mail Proxy -> Options -> DNSBL Sites & DNSBL Threshold.
For that is a working (own) DNS server required. Any public DNS provider such as google, get's blocked.
