We are deprecating be.surbl.org, the SURBL list made from a stale
snapshot of the BigEvil list before it got ws added into it.
BE probably isn't too useful anymore since it's not getting
updated, so please change to using ws.surbl.org instead.
Eventually we would like to get rid of BE entirely.

  http://www.surbl.org/lists.html#ws


WS has:

1. BigEvil by Chris Santerre and his SARE cohorts
2. Paul Barbeau's MidEvil.cf
3. Bill Stearns' sa-blacklist
4. filtered spamtrap records from Joe Wein's jwSpamSpy
5. MailSecurity's formerly proprietary SURBL lists
6. data from Raymond Dijkxhoorn's Prolocation RBL
7. some other manual lists, mostly maintained by Chris.

So if you were using BE, please change to WS instead.  Config file
entries for SpamAssassin look like this:


An SA 2.63/2.64 rule and score using SpamCopURI (but not the SpamCop
data!) looks like this: 

uri       WS_URI_RBL  eval:check_spamcop_uri_rbl('ws.surbl.org','127.0.0.2')
describe  WS_URI_RBL  URI's domain appears in sa-blacklist
tflags    WS_URI_RBL  net

score     WS_URI_RBL  3.0


An SA 3.0 rule and score using URIBL's urirhsbl looks like this:

urirhsbl  URIBL_WS_SURBL  ws.surbl.org.   A
header    URIBL_WS_SURBL  eval:check_uridnsbl('URIBL_WS_SURBL')
describe  URIBL_WS_SURBL  Contains a URL listed in sa-blacklist
tflags    URIBL_WS_SURBL  net

score URIBL_WS_SURBL    3.0


An SA 3.0 rule and score using URIBL's urirhssub looks like this:

urirhssub URIBL_WS_SURBL  multi.surbl.org.        A   4
header    URIBL_WS_SURBL  eval:check_uridnsbl('URIBL_WS_SURBL')
describe  URIBL_WS_SURBL  Contains a URL listed in the WS SURBL blocklist
tflags    URIBL_WS_SURBL  net

score URIBL_WS_SURBL    3.0
