The Available Domains list contains the domains that can be used for RBL rules. Domains can be enabled or disabled by moving them between the Available Domains and Enabled Domains lists using the single or double arrow buttons.
Each domain maintains an updated list of blacklisted IP addresses. One can use a preloaded domain list, or add his own custom domains.
