NS records missing for bl.spamcop.net

Recommended Posts

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
