   We do that here.  If he has something like this in his filter_end() :

  my($hits, $req, $names, $report) = spam_assassin_check();

he can add something like this after it:

  if ($report =~ /URIBL_(SC|WS)_SURBL.+\n\s+\[URIs:\s(.+)]/) {
    my $rbl = $1;
    my $uri = $2;
    return action_bounce("This message contains a URL referring to a domain ($2) that is listed on the $rbl URI RBL, and will not be accepted by this system.  If you feel you have received this message in error, please notify postmaster\@mydomain.com")

   That's assuming URIBL checking is enabled.  Hope this helps...
