Package: mailscanner
Version: 4.55.10-2
Severity: wishlist

MailScanner is in use at our organization (local goverment, less than
500 mailboxes) and we were contacted (friendly manner, not lawyer)
by SpamHaus and notified that we did not qualify for the free DNSRBL 

Instead, as a government entity, we are required to purchase the 
data-feed service.

The MailScanner configuration files do note that MAPS-RBL is a fee
service.  Adding a note about the difference between home user and
non-home user in the MailScanner.conf and spam.lists.conf files would
help corporate/government users stay in SpamHaus' use.

(It is not MailScanner's or Debian's responsibility to ensure
compliance, but a small hint certainly wouldn't hurt.)

Wishlist severity didn't ask for attachments, but the following lines
inserted into MailScanner.conf would point out the fee requirement:
