I don't believe I'm using any custom URI rulesets (I've never added anything
but chickenpox, popcorn, bigevil).  If these are custom URI rulesets, then
I just learned some new vocabulary :-)

I read the whole site, and I have a fuzzy picture now, but I don't really know
how to jump into this pool.

If I elect to stay with SA 2.63, then I should download and install
spamcopuri v0.18??  I assume I would find detailed instructions therein
for setting it up?

If I choose to go with SA 3.x, I first need to upgrade to teh new SA, and then
use uridnsbl or uribl or urirhsbl or ...  This is where my confusion
lies at the moment.  Then of course there is the ws.surbl and the be.surbl
and all of the talk about setting up dns, etc.

I was hoping for a howto kind of document, but maybe I'm the one who has
to write it as I learn???
