Not as yet.

Yes. SpamHaus DBL only allows domain name lookups, not IP lookups,
unlike SURBL and URIBL. In addition to discourage IP lookups on DBL,
SpamHaus returns a false positive code and will eventually blacklist an
abuser. Thus the code had to be changed to ensure that IP lookups are
not sent to the DBL.

The DBL support was added to milter-link and BarricadeMX earlier this
week. FSL and I are currently testing BarricadeMX 2.3.12 concerning DBL
and some of the other non-related changes recently made.
