    I have the following zones for RBL + Service: zen.spamhaus.org;bl.spamcop.net;problems.dnsbl.sorbs.net;multihop.dsbl.org;l2.spews.dnsbl.sorbs.net


    My understanding is that SMTP or more precisely the rblsmtpd service will query these lists when it gets an SMTP request. If it finds the server in one of the lists it terminates the SMTP connection so no mail is received.

    I get mail where spamassassin marks some email as:

    X-Spam-Report:
    * 2.5 RCVD_IN_XBL RBL: Received via a relay in Spamhaus XBL
    * [201.230.166.214 listed in sbl-xbl.spamhaus.org]

    But i have zen.spamhaus.org (zen contains sbl-xbl.spamhaus.org) in my RBL+ Zones so it is my understanding
    that my SMTP server should terminate the SMTP connection and never
    receive the email???

    Thanks!

    Right, but logically it shouldn't get to SPAMAssassin... As AbraCadaver said, the rbl should stop the SMTP connection before accepting the mail.

    Test your RBL via Crynwr tests robots to be sure that they work.
