I am getting alot of 'DNS: unknown hosts" on firewall log, coming frm varies
RBL server queries from no spam today. here is one
DNS: Unknown host: '125.178.103.202.sbl.spamhaus.org'
Is there somehing I need to configure with No spam today?
I have the spam server sending DNS requests to inhouse win2000 DNS server which uses fowarders to DSL router firewall that has a DNS server built in. I could send DNS queries straight out to outside DNS, but I need inside win2000 DNS server for internal name resoultion.
ANy help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Mike

You can configure the SpamAssassin filter to use an external DNS server
by adding a line like this to the [ServerSessionManager] section of the nospamtoday.cf file:
DNSServer="217.237.149.161 217.237.150.225"
Remember to replace the DNS servers' addresses with the ones of your ISP.
