DNS-BL Hosts

Enable DNS-BL queries

Activate this option if you wish to check incoming mail against DNS Black Lists. MDaemon will query each listed host when performing a DNS-BL lookup on the sending IP address. If a host replies to the query with a positive result, MDaemon can flag the message or refuse to accept it, depending on which options you have enabled on the DNS-BL Options screen.


Select an entry from the DNS-BL service list and click this button to remove it from the list.
