Alex, I'm sure it would work fine for the RHSBLs (in fact, I was using
SpamcopURI against the MailPolice RHSBL before upgrading to SA 3.0.x), but
probably will not for the DNSBLs, since I don't think it supports the
functionality of doing a DNS lookup on the URI and then querying the DNSBL
with the IP address (instead of the domain) like the URIDNSBL plug-in does.
