Could be. Do you have a local dns server? If you don't, perhaps you could
set one as cache, and perhaps the "not found" answer would be inmediate.
I'm unsure of this, but you could try.

I use a local dns server - but I think, since the the inactive RBL is
like a dead dns server, you cannot avoid the timeout.

I think I remember that rbl lookup was optional before, with suse 7.3,
somewhere on the main mail config. I use postfix now, I can not check.

RBL is still optional in SuSE sendmail, but its on by default (at least
in SuSE 8.1).
