AWL -- Help! [message #492] Tue, 28 February 2006 15:10

Hey, I have a bunch of email addresses defined in the local.cf like:

whitelist_from *@joshstarr.com

The problem is, it simply reduces the message scoring by a small amount. I want Spam Assassin to not filter messages FROM these users AT ALL. How can I do that? I want it to simply route the message onward without filtering it at all if it originates from a user defined in the whitelist_from

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks,
Joshua

The easiest way is to use NST, configuration, Spamassassin, click advanced options, then uncheck the "Use Same Address Settings as Previous Filter" and add the e-mail addresses that you want on a permanent white list into the box "Address patterns to disable filter".

Remember that if you have any other NST filters following the SpamAssassin filter - they will adopt the same rules as you have just setup.

The entries on a white list are given -100 points.... which should mean that they will always make it through EVEN if they are spam.

Thanks, I really appreciate your insightful response! I went ahead and activated it the way you said. I assume that wildcards will work as well?

ie: *@joshstarr.com


Thanks again!

Yes, wildcards will of course work.
