I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

These are not downloadable lists.   That would be shooting at a rapidly moving target as thousands of IP addresses and networks are banned and unbanned each day.

These "lists", which are actually databases, are consulted by doing DNS lookups.  Here's an example:

    ================== FIRST TEST ===================

    Expected result success,

    Official name = <>
    Address length in bytes = 4
    Resolved to

    Validation successful

    ================== SECOND TEST ===================

    Expected result failure

    Lookup failed, h_errno = 1 <Unknown host>

    Validation successful

    ================ ALL TESTS PASS =================

If Spamhaus thinks there's a problem with an IP address, you do a DNS lookup for that address with the octets reversed, followed by the database name (in the above, the "sbl-xbl" database), followed by "".  If there is a response, Spamhaus thinks there's an issue and the low octet of the response indicates the problem.

Most other spam databases work the same way.

Postfix can check these databases automatically.  There are plugins for Apache (mod_spamhaus, mod_torcheck, mod_honeypot) to do IP validation for web server requests.

Side note:  While the Barracuda RBL is free, all other Barracuda services are now by paid subscription.  Check the cost against the benefits before signing anything.
