Ah -- I've just realised, that will be a pretty big problem ;)

Jeff, can we change that to another domain? example.com is widely used for
the purpose it's intended for, an "example domain" to use in example URLs,
example email addrs, example whatever.  Adding it to SURBL as the test
domain means that it now gets another, unpleasant meaning -- a good way
to get your mail into the spam folder.  I don't think that'll be 
a good side-effect. :(

Something more like the GTUBE ( http://SpamAssassin.org/gtube/ ) -- ie
a domain that doesn't already exist and is not going to crop up for other
reasons.  Something like http://surbl-org-permanent-test-point.com/ ?
