There is no approved, direct way to incorporate Project Honey Pot's data into Spam Assassin. The best way to get the benefit of Project Honey Pot with SA is to use one of the RBLs with which we share data. I'd recommend the SURBL (www.surbl.org) which integrates with Spam Assassin directly and with whom we currently are feeding URLs that appear in spam messages received by the Project.

This won't help when we're receiving spam from bots that you have listed.

We get a lot of spam from bots that you have listed, so it would be great if you can allow spam assassin dns requests. Currently we can't do this because you require the access key BEFORE the IP address as follows -

ACCESSKEY.7.1.1.127.dnsbl.httpbl.org

We can easily write a spam assassin rule if you allow the access key AFTER the IP address, as shown here -

7.1.1.127.ACCESSKEY.dnsbl.httpbl.org

Allowing this would allow us to say NO to spam coming from bots.

IIRC the terms of service expressly forbid "say NO to spam" coming from bots or else where based on http:BL information.

Check http://www.projecthoneypot.org/terms_of_service_use.php

If I read that correctly I wouldn't expect an update to do what you want.
