Subject Barracuda Reputation Block List (BRBL) removal from the SA ruleset
Date Mon, 05 Feb 2018 14:09:55 GMT
Heads up!  This RBL has been removed from the core SA ruleset.  In 36 to 
48 hours sa-update will remove the RCVD_IN_BRBL_LASTEXT rule after it 
has gone through the masscheck and rule promotion process.

Details can be found here:

To add this rule back manually, you should register here:

and add this to your

ifplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::DNSEval

header          __RCVD_IN_BRBL  eval:check_rbl('brbl', 
tflags          __RCVD_IN_BRBL  net

header          __RCVD_IN_BRBL_2        eval:check_rbl_sub('brbl', 
describe        RCVD_IN_BRBL    Received is listed in Barracuda RBL
score           RCVD_IN_BRBL    1.2
tflags          RCVD_IN_BRBL    net

header          RCVD_IN_BRBL_LASTEXT 
eval:check_rbl('brbl-lastexternal', '')
describe        RCVD_IN_BRBL_LASTEXT    Last external is listed in 
Barracuda RBL
score           RCVD_IN_BRBL_LASTEXT    2.2
tflags          RCVD_IN_BRBL_LASTEXT    net


NOTE: recent masscheck processing shows RCVD_IN_BRBL_LASTEXT as the most 
effective non-zero scoring rule to hit spam (43%) so it's probably worth 
adding back to your on Wednesday or Thursday.
