Hi Tony, 

Many thanks for the hint. 
My mistake: no dot at the end in the domain name for the passthru statement. 

Kind regards

It should work if you put your passthru RPZ before any blocking RPZs.

A tangential aside...

The ordering in a response-policy section can affect performance, as well as which policies take priority. I set `qname-wait-recurse no`, and I list RPZs that do not require recursion (because they only contain `qname` and `rpz-client-ip` triggers) before RPZs with unrestricted triggers.

Fitzroy: Easterly or northeasterly 4 or 5 in southeast, otherwise variable 3 or 4. Slight or moderate. Fair. Good.
