Recently, I noticed that more and more e-mails were classified as SPAM by spamassassin on my mail server, including the ones from my beloved husband (well, honestly, some of those were actually SPAM but that’s a private story…). Looking at the source of the messages, I found out that the criterion DNS_FROM_AHBL_RHSBL always scored out to a large value. The explanation is here: AHBL has shut down! Then, the solution was to disable AHBL filter from spamassassin by editing the file /etc/spamassassin/local.cf and adding the following line:

score DNS_FROM_AHBL_RHSBL 0


Finally, spamassassin daemon must be reloaded:

/etc/init.d/spamassassin reload
