We will be removing the data in jp.surbl.org from ws.surbl.org on
February 7th.*  If you are using SpamAssassin and don't already
have a separate rule for JP, then please add one as described
in the SURBL Quick Start:


When SpamAssassin 3.1 is released, it will also include a separate
rule for JP.

If you are using other programs, please check that they are using
JP in addition to the other lists in multi.  JP is bitmask in multi.surbl.org and it has a relatively high spam
detection rate and low false positive rate, so it's definitely
worth using.  More information can be found on the Lists page:


(* Previously JP data was merged in with WS data because
SpamAssassin 3.0 was released before a separate rule for
JP could be added.  Adding them into WS was a way to get
the benefits of JP into SA 3.0.  But the lists are better
separately because they have some differing data sources
and types.)
