    Our SMTP service stopped working this morning around 8am PST

    Qmail could not be restarted in the Plesk Panel
    Qmail appearred to restart OK on commnand prompt
    POP3 was still working.

    I tracked this down to multi.uribl.com in our MAPS zones

    I can't do a PING or DNS lookups are failing for multi.uribl.com

    Does this mean their service is down?

    Really sucks that Qmail MAPS zone is so fragile that if one stops working SMTP breaks..

    In our process list we saw a bunch of these rblsmtpd processes backed
    up, which lead us to the MAPS zones
