whitelist overriding blacklist [message #382] Mon, 05 December 2005 10:13

We have a domain that we whitelisted using the no spam today admin program. This gets added to the local.cf by no spam today. We also have a list of blacklist_to (old users) in the local.cf which we add ourselves. As the NST admin program always put's it's additions to the bottom of the file, we add our blacklist_to entries to the top.

The problem is that one of the blacklist_to addresses recieves a lot of unwanted email from the whitelisted domain and it's getting through to us due to said whitelisting. How can we make the blacklist_to overrider the whitelist_from?

Thanks

I think in your case it is preferable not to accept mail to "old users" at all.

But you can override the whitelist_from and blacklist_to scores. The scores at present are (see 50_scores.cf):

score USER_IN_WHITELIST -100.000
score USER_IN_BLACKLIST_TO 10.000

Simply add similar lines to your local.cf file.
