RBL stands for Real-time Black-Listing. It is a spam-fighting method used by mail transfer agents such as sendmail to detect that a remote machine is a known spammer, upon receipt of an email from that machine. If the machine is on one or more blacklists the MTA knows about, the email will be rejected as spam.
