Hi Gang,

We have been using RBL for some time now and it has helped cut down or in
coming SPAM... Now we want to add ORBS too..

OK, I went into SMTP on SIMS 1.8b8 and in the RBL server list I put and updated... but when I sent the test message to I got back "Uh-oh, your ORBS block is not
working!" and the results was this....

Testing your ORBS block.  See for more info

Here's how the conversation looked from
Note that some sites don't apply the ORBS block to postmaster, so
I use your envelope sender as the To: address.
