Purpose

The rhsbl.ahbl.org, dnsbl.ahbl.org, and ircbl.ahbl.org are not working anymore. This means that these services will return positive responses for any queries. More info here - http://www.ahbl.org/content/last-notice-wildcarding-services-jan-1st

Resolution

Spamassasin have a proper autoupdate the scores and list, and should be comment the AHBL.

If you have 8.0.7 or above, check it, and if you have problems with the autoupdate, please run it manually:

/opt/zimbra/libexec/zmsaupdate

If you have 8.0.6 or previous, we have a bug and you need to take a look here - https://bugzilla.zimbra.com/show_bug.cgi?id=85462

In case that you have any trouble, please edit the 50_scores.cf file and comment the lines from AHBL.

We can confirm that in 8.6, 8.5.1, 8.5 and 8.0.9 and 8.0.8 you should be able to launch this command, and see AHBL disabled:
