This is all working now - thanks for your pointers and help.
Thanks very much! The trusted and internal network did work, my issue
was that for some reason I have to restart amavis and spamassassin for
new settings to be taken into use. I can't explain it, but once I did
this things were much more reliable (and your settings worked). 

again for all the help!

all - thanks so much for the help! Much appreciated. Some thoughts,
below. 1) I can ask at spamassassin, but it seems like my spamassassin
settings aren't being used. Does amavis somehow take this over, or
should the spamassassin settings really work? Sounds like a dumb
question I know, but I have tried changing the settings and they don't
seem to be used (and I'm restarting spamassassin and amavis both ...

>> 2) You are correct - it's because my IP is a
dynamic IP, provided by Verizion FIOS. They have added all their IP's to
the blacklist. I just have a backup mail server (at my brother's house),
that forwards email to me when my main server goes down. But I don't
want the email blocked just because it came from FIOS (in fact, one of
the failing RBL checks just says it's a Verizon IP, which I already know
... :-)). 3) Sorry, just trying to understand your last comment (about
internal and trusted networks). Will the previous relays be checked,
just the last one is skipped?
