email@example.com sent me a mail related to DNSBL's, but my mail bounced
when I tried to respond. I have no idea who this is, but I figure this
person saw me post here.

Have you done local masschecks to verify the safety and effectiveness of
For example, ubl.unsubscore.com when I ran it in spamassassin masscheck
during 2009 caught 7.9% spam and 2.3% ham. I tried it again yesterday,
but it was a complete failure with 0-12 response times. Spamassassin
times out and gives up at ~3.6 seconds. You aren't seeing timeouts? Try
spamassassin -D on a particular message and look at the debug spew.
As for the other DNSBL's could you help by contacting their owners and
asking if they wish to be tested in spamassassin's Saturday morning
masscheck. Show them http://ruleqa.spamassassin.org/
