I apologize in advance for the disclaimer that gets attached to my
outbound email..


tl;dr: Unbound is fine, it's Sophos..

We also have Sophos here, and sophos does a txt lookup for each url

It's some sort of 'web filter' option on Sophos..

I find Sophos to be a terrible product for us.. I can't recall it
actually stopping anything or being able to clean anything..

This is how I dealt with that..
