Avast is a anti-virus application, not a spam filter.

If you want to block websites, you can use the hosts file to do so.
Info 1
Info 2

Many browsers also have a option to do so. eg the security advisor in Internet Explorer

Are you asking this in relation to Mailwasher and its Origins of Spam feature? If so there is no requirement as that is an integral part of the program and any settings related to MailWasher (and you shouldn't need any) would take care of it.

You will see I am using MailWasher Pro from my signature and the attached image.

Edit: You will also see that I am using an additional source sbl-xbl.spamhaus.org this detects the majority of my spam and I have stopped using ordb.org as I didn't see it catching anything.

Thank for info's.

My mail server works on Lotus Domino, and there is a option "DNS Backlist Filters" which checks mail sender server address on sites "relays.ordb.org; bl.spamcop.net" and reject mail if found there. But when I start using avast as mail relay, my mail server see that all incoming messages comes from 127.0.0.1 address /localhost/ and accept it.

You only need to have your email program work with avast (if that is working the dns checking should also work), the internal option/s of checking DNS blacklists shouldn't require anything else.

If your email programs is working correctly with avast, then set it to check the DNS blacklists and check and see if it works
