One of my
hesitations for running IPv6 with Surgemail was lack of RBL support and
the fact that spammers would adopt IPv6 just to get spam through
because there aren’t as many checks in place. What RBL’s support IPv6
lookups that you are using? If I can get a working copy of Surgemail
that does RBL lookups for IPv6 addresses and the RBL’s I’m querying
support them, I think I’ll try flipping it on.

These 'errors' are not real errors, but display
Drop to a command prompt at root(or sudo) and run:
netstat -apn | grep surgemail
And that should show surgemail listening to ipv6 addresses.
Also unless ChrisP has sent you a new binary, your rbl's won't work in
ipv6 mode. Surgemail was malforming the queries to rbl's when in ipv6
mode. I brought this to his attention early last week, but have not
heard if he has released a fixed beta for that bug yet.
