Me too don't worry :)

The fact is that only rbl.conf has the "helo = true" option, that I've 
been told does a forward lookup of the HELO string and checks the 
resulting IP in the RBL where it's defined, but at the same time it also 
checks the HELO string itself. I'm not really sure about that and I 
think the best would be for some developer to chime in and explain how 
"helo = true" really works.

For the mean time I think I'll leave the configuration as is, as 
probably those warnings are not causing any harm.

Anyway, thanks for digging it and trying to help me solve the problem! :)
