OK, so URIBL has asked to use bit 1 and changed their ACL so if they return a
block, bit 1 is used.

I updated to include their block rule and a score of 0.001 in

#URIBL BLOCK RULES - Bit 1 means your DNS has been blocked and this rule should
be triggered to notify you.
urirhssub URIBL_BLOCKED A 1
body URIBL_BLOCKED eval:check_uridnsbl('URIBL_BLOCKED')
blocked. See for
more information.
tflags URIBL_BLOCKED nice net noautolearn

Also updated to
include a link to URIBL.

Committed revision 1213921.

Matthias, if you can decide on a bit (not a bitmask) to return for DNSWL
blocks, we can add the notification rule.

And if this moves you to change your decision to implement the purposefully
wrong DNS response, we can move DNSWL back to default configuration.

Then we'll keep the ticket open and perhaps someone can work on a way to make
spamd recognize that the BLOCK rule is triggered and hold off on subsequent
DNSBL queries for 1 hour.
