    NS records missing for bl.spamcop.net

    Hi Don, Thank you for your answer. Keep up the good job!
  2. Our e-mail appliances (McAfee) are setup with bl.spamcop.net for RBL blocking. Works great! But the appliances have got an internal health check, with periodically performs checks on the RBL service. 2 checks are performed: - Check if DNS "NS" records are available for the zone "bl.spamcop.net" - Check if DNS "A" record is available in the zone "bl.spamcop.net" The results are shown below: ------------------------ Appliance -> DNS Standard query NS bl.spamcop.net DNS -> Appliance Standard query Response Server failure Appliance -> DNS Standard query A DNS -> Appliance Standard query Response A A DIG from the appliance gives the following result: dig bl.spamcop.net ns ;; Got answer: ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: SERVFAIL, id: 44086 ;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0 ------------------------ For al other RBL's these checks are working ok (zen.spamhaus.org / cird.bl.mcafee.com) Question: Why are there no NS records implemented for "bl.spamcop.net"? And can those be added? Thanks in advance! Kind Regards, Spamcop RBL user
