Whitelist - how? [message #641] Tue, 10 August 2004 19:34

I'm going to make a fool of myself, so please excuse me in advance.

How do I setup the whitelist functions? I want to write an interface back from our mail application (Lotus Notes) ... to add a whitelist entry.

But ... excuse me ... I've looked through the very simple html files provided as some kind of support and they expect you to have a much better understanding than myself.

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Let this interface write a small text file in the "sa\ruleset" subdirectory of your installation. If this file has the extension ".cf" SpamAssassin will pick it up automatically on each run, so "local_whitelist.cf" would be suitable.

For each sender address you want to whitelist, add a line like this:

whitelist_from some_address@somedomain.org

Separate the keyword "whitelist_from" from the entry with white space (blanks or tabs).

Most of the interesting SpamAssassin configuration info is in this HTML document:

Mail_SpamAssassin_Conf.htm

If you are not sure if your new rules and settings actually work, you can run a syntax check, as described in this FAQ entry:
