<address@hidden>: host[] said: 550 5.0.0 <address@hidden>... Korea blocked due to Spam

Korea?!  We're in Melbourne, Australia.  I can only assume that
allantgroup's not running spamassassin, but some broken RBL stuff? :)
My relay host is by day, which is most definatly
not in Korea (

That was due to an overly-general access.db entry.  I had put blocks on
210/8 and 211/8 around 4 years ago because of all the spam coming from
compromised machines in KRNIC-controlled address space.  Apparently
APNIC has since given part of those netblocks to Australian ISPs.

I still get ~300 spams a day blocked by this, so I wish I could leave
it in...  Too bad there isn't a SpamAssassin rule that triggers on IPs
with no reverse DNS, as it looks like all of the Korean spam falls
under this category.
