Mark, the entries are like this....        REJECT
25.110.50              REJECT
30.120                  REJECT
40                        REJECT
somedomain.com  REJECT
zw                        REJECT
another-idea.com  REJECT

etc... those just examples of the way the IP's and hostnames are in the
access file.  I've been using an access file for years, but just noticed
these IP's were not being blocked, but some are being caught by the
spamd/rtbl and other spam fighting tools.
