Replace "" with '' delimiters. That will stop unreal trying to download the url.
Is it somewhere in the examples?

As k4be said. Mentioned in the release notes (the last point):

Remote includes are now supported everywhere in the config file.
* Support for https:// fetching is now always available, even if you don't compile with libcurl support.
* Anywhere an URL is encountered on its own, it will be fetched automatically. This makes it work not only for includes and motd (which was already supported) but also for any other file.
* To prevent something from being interpreted as a remote include URL you can use 'value' instead of "value".

So change:
   match "https?://";

   match 'https?://';

You're right, maybe we should mention it at more places, indeed.

I've changed the default spamfilter.conf to use single quotes and added an explanation at the top of the file about why this is a good idea.
Similarly, I have done the same in the examples at and in
Hope that helps :)
