this is very strange and i was not able to take it seriously until i see it grepping zimbra.log
the short story:
i add ~20 adresses in salocal.cf.in and restarted zimbra; i tried to send an email from one of them and it was blocked (blacklist_from marini.maurizio@gmail.com)
then one other of them send 2 mails, one was blocked (then the filter is ok and it works fine); the second one, instead, PASS

the first mail
Oct 3 13:51:38 mailz amavis[26876]: (26876-08) Blocked SPAM, [212.216.176.109] [212.216.176.109] <xxx@virgilio.it> -> <xxx@xxx.it>, Message-ID: <11565b4b5d6.xxx@virgilio.it>, mail_id: KLXUg0TW-tMp, Hits: 99.824, 3922 ms

the second

incredible but true
any idea?
TIA
