Hi there,

It looks like no longer works with NoSpamToday's default configuration.

At, it says:

The dynablock zone has been emptied and the zone will be shut
down in the near future. If you're still using, it's long past time to
switch to

If I'm reading things correctly, NoSpamToday still refers to this blacklist in its default SpamAssassin configuration. This means that the SpamAssassin scores will become that much less useful.

SpamAssassin 3.2 comes configured to use (which includes, but the 3.1.7 NoSpamToday uses is now out of date.

You can use the 3.2 configuration with 3.1.7 -- I've been doing this for some months, and have had no problems.

To do this, you'll need to edit in "C:\Program Files\No Spam Today!\sa\ruleset".

Add something like
score __RCVD_IN_SBL_XBL 0
to turn off both the NJABL_DUL rule and the old SBL_XBL rule.

Then go to which is the 3.2 configuration file.

Look for the lines
# ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
# Spamhaus SBL+XBL, now called Zen

and copy everything until the next
# ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
into (Note that if you're using sbl-xbl as a DNSBL filter, then RCVD_IN_XBL, at least, is redundant -- you could leave those lines out.)

You will also need some scores for these: try something like
score RCVD_IN_SBL 4.3
score RCVD_IN_PBL 3.0
score RCVD_IN_XBL 4.2
(again, those go in Adjust the scores to taste).

Incidentally, I notice that a fix has (probably) been found for the problems NoSpamToday was experiencing with SpamAssassin 3.2, so we might get a fixed version of NoSpamToday sometime. Details can be found at

Hope this helps!
