    Question Spam Score low

    Hi all,

    This just started the last few days. Our spam blocker is scoring a lot of emails very low and allowing them to get through. Is there anything that can be done here? I'm running Untangle version 9. Thanks!

    Ditto!!! Same IP addresses on mine too. I even manually put some ranges on the firewall for blocking.

    Have the spammers found some workaround to fool the scoring? Or is it just UT 9 having this problem?

    I would open a support ticket.

    Also, double check and make sure your Untangle server has a working DNS!

    You can read this thread for more details on how to test dnswl manually, and you can use spamhaus's web site to get the details you need to test it's lookup as well.

    If either of those lists aren't working because DNS is out of whack, or you're using a public name service that's banned you'll get flooded. Untangle 9 vs 10 doesn't change this reality.

    How do I test for a working DNS and DNSWL? I didn't see any details on testing for DNSWL. I'm pretty sure untangle has a working DNS.

    I have been experiencing the same issues. Looks like the Cox primary DNS server @ 68.105.28.16 is being blocked by spamhaus.

    Edit: It seems to be hit and miss. If I run the command
    Code:
    host -t TXT amiblocked.dnswl.org 68.105.28.16
    multiple times, it only fails on some of the requests.

    Okay, figure out how to run The DNSWL test and it returned the following:
    PHP Code:
    amiblocked.dnswl.org descriptive text "no" 
    Tested this on both TW DNS servers : 209.18.47.61 & 209.18.47.62

    DNSWL is only part of it.

    Did you test spamhaus? The command for a sample lookup is in post 7.

    DNSWL AT&T - Good

    Spamhaus - Good

    Number of spam getting through - Not good!!

    Okay so my ISP's DNS servers came back as a "yes" for amiblocked.dnswl.com but I'm showing them as not blocked at spamhaus. I'm getting quite a bit of this obvious spam coming through, so is that just because of being blocked at DNSWL.org?
