What is the Spamhaus DBL?

The DBL is domain based block list (instead of a typical IP address based block list)

Support for the Spamhaus DBL is automatically included in the latest version of SpamAssassin (version 3.3.2 as of this posting)

You can find the rules by grepping through your SpamAssassin configs :

> grep URIBL_DBL_SPAM * URIBL_DBL_SPAM A URIBL_DBL_SPAM eval:check_uridnsbl('URIBL_DBL_SPAM') URIBL_DBL_SPAM Contains an URL listed in the DBL blocklist URIBL_DBL_SPAM net domains_only pt_BR describe URIBL_DBL_SPAM Contém uma URL listada na blacklist DBL blocklist URIBL_DBL_SPAM 0 1.7 0 1.7

And verify they are getting hit by checking your SpamAssassin logs, for example :
