Your check is right. This mail server is listed only in Blars's (did
I wrote correctly?), but I forgot exact URL where that can be checked.

We have net-block, I contacted Blars and here is
his answer:
--------------------------------------------------------------------- is in BlarsBL for sending spam and hosting spammer
web sites.  abuse@eunet.yu was informed about the problem multiple
times and the spam continued.

Tried to post answer with explanation, but I give up after I've got
bounce :-(

You see, because some machine on are source of spam
(I didn't check, but that is likely true) Blars blocked network which
is not. Hi could block or

So, IMHO RBL is evil.

With amavisd-new, spamassassin, clamav and some postfix tweaking I
have less then 5% of spam in my users mailboxes.

Again, sorry for of-topic post.
