             Bug #: 6737
           Summary: Disabling all related rules does not disable the
                    queries for network tests
           Product: Spamassassin
           Version: SVN Trunk (Latest Devel Version)
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: spamassassin
        AssignedTo: dev@spamassassin.apache.org
        ReportedBy: Darxus@ChaosReigns.com
    Classification: Unclassified

For example, if you disable all the dnswl tests with:

score RCVD_IN_DNSWL_NONE 0
score RCVD_IN_DNSWL_LOW 0
score RCVD_IN_DNSWL_MED 0
score RCVD_IN_DNSWL_HI 0
score RCVD_IN_DNSWL_BLOCKED 0

You'll still send all the associated DNS queries if you don't use one of:

score __RCVD_IN_DNSWL 0 # recommended by
http://wiki.apache.org/spamassassin/DnsBlocklists (John Hardin?)
meta __RCVD_IN_DNSWL 0 # recommended by Karsten Bräckelmann

This results in the possibility of sites disabling the rules while still
sending large numbers of network queries.
