The latest setup of NoSpamToday! now includes the SpamCopURI plugin for SpamAssassin 2.63. This plugin checks for the URLs of known spam-advertised websites in the body of mail messages.

This approach does seem very promising, as Spammers need hyperlinks to lure unsuspecting users to their websites, and the URLs in these links are hard to hide from spam filters.

A non-null score in the new rule file spamcop_uri.cf activates this plugin. Recommended scores are in the range of 3.0 (conservative) to 6.0 (agressive). The initial setting after installation is 4.5. Note that for the SpamCopURI plugin to work, RBL checks must not be disabled.

Found this:
Mail::SpamAssassin::SpamCopURI is a plugin to Mail::SpamAssassin. It consults the list of spamvertised sites on www.spamcop.net and provides rules to allow scoring of blacklisted urls.

If it's working that way, one has to open Port 80 on a firewall, placed between the NST-Server and the internet, to spamcop.net, because the list has to be transferred???

Or how do we get the actual list ?

This information is outdated. In the version NoSpamToday! uses the list of spam-advertised sites is queried by DNS.
