	I am trying to use SURBL with spamassassin 3.0.2 but, even though
there seems to be an otherwise unusual length of time to process a
message, it is definitely not picking up the
http://surbl-org-permanent-test-point.com/ or test URLs
that I put into a test message.

	I use a local caching nameserver (djbdns).

	I invoke spamd with "-d -m5 -s local4 -u smtpd -x" and I have
restarted the daemon.

	My /etc/mail/spamassassin/init.pre contains this line:

loadplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::URIDNSBL

	My /etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf contains the following, with
explanations afterwards:

	Explanation: I am not using any of the features in the first part
of the list as you can tell by the "0". In addition, I normally do not use
any of the network features, so I have explicitly turned off all of the
DNSBL checks by setting the scores to "0" for each of them. All I want to
do is run SURBL and do some specific filtering.

	I have tried the URIDNSBL stuff two different ways. First, I had
set the included tests to score "0" and used my own definition, then I
changed it to what you see now, to use the stock definitions.

	Questions: Do I have something defined incorrectly? Have I missed
a definition? Anything else?

	Thanks for any help.
