You are most probably right there.  I do have spamhaus before Spamhaus is getting over a hundred credits and my spam traffic has dropped quite significantly since activating that.

I wanted to be sure it was working because one spam that got through carried an originating path which looked like a dialup node so I wanted to make sure that that RBL was working.

It's probably just a node that hasn't yet made it to the list.

I don't tend to get a lot of RBL rejections based on dial-up listings
myself. For a variety of reasons, serious spammers prefer to exploit open
proxies and open relays these days rather than hopping from dial-up to
dial-up. It might be that you simply haven't been hit by any dial-up
spammers. Or if you've got other RBL zones listed before that also happen to list the same addresses,
the first zone that contains a blacklisted address is the one that gets
credit for it in the log.
