For the archives, i ran this:

cat /usr/share/spamassassin/* | grep '^tflag' | grep  net | awk '{print 
"score "$2" 0"}'  >> /etc/mail/mimedefang/sa-mimedefang.cf

Commented out the SURBL (since i want to use them).  Set 
SALocalTestsOnly=0 and bam, SURBL tests started working!  Hopefully other 
other network tests aren't being used or my mailserver won't last 
long...haha.  In general are all the other network tests DNS based?

Also while poking around, some SURBL mails got through cause BAYES_00 gave 
a negative score.  In general do ya'll let BAYES_* rules score negative? 
What about the other negative scores?  Just set them to zero?  thanks for 
any info...
