We're likely to first answer that we can't help with MailScanner.  Try
"spamassassin -D < some_message > /dev/null" from the commandline, and see
what happens.  If SURBL works there, it's MailScanner.  If it doesn't, the
debug should give you some hints.

The two main issues I've heard about are: not using a supported Net::DNS
version, the install (or third party tool, or ...) not using init.pre
to load the URIDNSBL module.
