Whitelists and Blacklists

Whitelists and Blacklists

Whitelisting and blacklisting, allows or blocks messages sent by specific senders. Please be aware that email senders can be forged - you cannot rely on the sender 100%.

Blacklisted senders are blocked and end up in the quarantine.

Whitelisted senders always get past the spam filters, but if their messages are corrupt or virus infected, our other filters may capture them, in order to keep you well-protected.

Please note:  It is not recommended to whitelist yourself or your own domain.  Doing so means that any forged email coming from outside will get right past our spam filters.



Add individual senders or domains with the "Add" and choose Whitelist or Blacklist. 





Or enter many at once with the "Add Whitelisted Sender(s) or Add Blacklisted Sender(s)..." option in the "Bulk Operations" menu.



You can whitelist or blacklist:

Addresses: user@domain.com

Domains: domain.com

TLD's (top level domains): .info, .tv, .eu, etc  (be sure to leave the preceding dot out when adding TLD's)


More specific entries override the less specific, so you can block aol.com, but exempt your Mom by allowing mom@aol.com.
