I do not know if you are allready using smtpd_recipient_restrictions

If not, add the following to your postfix main.cf, and do a
Code:
postfix restart
The main.cf file should be located in
Code:
/etc/postfix
(note: before adding the blacklists, make sure you read, and agree to their policy!)

Code:
smtpd_recipient_restrictions =
            reject_invalid_hostname,
            reject_unknown_recipient_domain,
            reject_unauth_pipelining,
            permit_mynetworks,
            permit_sasl_authenticated,
            reject_unauth_destination,
            reject_rbl_client multi.uribl.com,
            reject_rbl_client dsn.rfc-ignorant.org,
            reject_rbl_client dul.dnsbl.sorbs.net,
            reject_rbl_client list.dsbl.org,
            reject_rbl_client sbl-xbl.spamhaus.org,
            reject_rbl_client bl.spamcop.net,
#            reject_rbl_client dnsbl.sorbs.net,
#            reject_rbl_client opm.blitzed.org,
#            reject_rbl_client blackholes.easynet.nl,
            reject_rbl_client cbl.abuseat.org,
            reject_rbl_client ix.dnsbl.manitu.net,
            permit
The smtpd_recipient_restrictions, will do a verification agains some databases, and some other "spam used" rules.

Wow, that's a long list. Please check the policies of these blacklists do meet your requirements. I see a couple that could lead to false positives. Of course, as the server owner, you decide what the criteria you use to filter, but my humble advise is to check the main web pages of these blacklists and make sure you agree with THEIR policy. Then add them to postfix.

martinfst you are correct about the "their policy", and I should have mentioned this in the my post!

The list is long, and I'm using this on one of my test servers that is getting a lot of spam!

Before I started to use that "list", I did check with the sites, and as far as I can see I'm okay.

However, as you see a couple that could lead to false positives, you got me checking each one again, but I did not find any problems.

Could you please let me know what you think the "problem" blacklists could be?

Thank you

are the ones I have question marks for. sorbs.net is intensively/regularly discussed about it's policies on Postfix/Spamassassin/Exim mailings lists, IIRC. But again, the usefulness and FP rate are entirely related to your own environment. But I think it's good to be aware of the policies of blacklists providers, so you know what you add on your server. If your fine with that, it's oke for me.

I don't think you can comment the postfix configuration like you did. The whole smtpd_recipient_restrictions = line is one configuration line. You can check with
Code:
postconf -n
if everything is as expected. Also please check the /var/log/mail.* files (maillog) for any errors after you restart postfix.

I'd advice to remove the # lines completely from your config.
