Hello Stephen,

You should not use public DNS resolvers (or ISP DNS servers) in ORF, such as Google's 8.8.8.8 or Quad9 (9.9.9.9). These servers aggregate traffic from many sources and may get banned for exceeding the free traffic limitations imposed by many DNS Blacklists and SURBLs, resulting in diminished spam filtering performance in ORF.

You could still use Quad9 as a third-party DNS resolution service in your network, firewall, router (etc), though.

FYI - Spamhaus and UriBL have paid datafeeds that are quite reasonable. If you use a public DNS server as a forwarder it is worth the investment.
