Yes, you're right, it's the only way to check helo.

I just checked on #rspamd IRC and there's a bug with the current rspamd 
1.9.4 and monitored_address, which means you can't actually set it to 
"facebook.com" or similar.
It has just been fixed by this commit:

I've also tried setting disable_monitoring = true, but it doesn't seem 
to have any effect as I still see the error.

Anyway, it's cosmetic (I think?) and the new rules work great otherwise. 
  Thanks again for creating and sharing them with us.

Shutting up now.

Kind Regards,
