My spamassassin installation is not using any of my blacklist items to score messages. Currently I have three custom blacklist files in my /etc/mail/spamassassin folder.
blacklist.cf contains manually entered blacklist entries.
custom_bl.cf contains specific entries that I wanted to keep separate from other manual entries.
foreign_bl.cf contains about 50 items specifically designed to blacklist messages from certain domains in the form of: blacklist_from *@*.vu
None of these blacklist items are being used to flag messages in SA. Running 'spamassassin -D --lint' reveals no errors and shows all files being loaded.
I'm at a loss.

This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
