At the moment users with Right Hand Side BlackLists (RHSBL) configured and enabled on their SME Servers (as described in the wiki) might have problems receiving mail on their mailservers as all mail will bounce.

They might see issues like mentioned in this post in the forums.

The problem is one of the RHSBL lists that has gone out of order, more details can be found here: http://wiki.openrbl.org/wiki/Blackhole.securitysage.com or http://www.dnsbl.com/2007/10/status-of-blackholesecuritysagecom-down.html

The SME Server team is aware of the issue and is working to fix the issue.

To get your SME Server(s) to receive mail again, temporarily disable RHSBL lists on your server:

1. Login to you server as root user on the SME Server shell
2. Issue the following command
Code: [Select]
config setprop qpsmtpd RHSBL disabled3. After that you need to do the following as well to reflect the configuratin changes:
Code: [Select]
signal-event email-update
After that you can update your RHSBL configuration with these instructions in the wiki: http://wiki.contribs.org/Updating_to_SME_7.2#RHSBL_Servers
