Thoughts on “How to Whitelist or Blacklist in SpamExperts

  • We are receiving e-mails masquerading as coming from a legitimate user. Can we have the system quarantine anything from a specific user address to let us check it by previewing it before we release it to the recipient(s) ?

  • Hello, what happens if someone is placed on both the whitelist and blacklist? I would like to blacklist a Top-Level Domain (ie. all of .us) but also whitelist a particular safe domain address (ie. safesender.us). Would this work as intended?

    • Theoretically, yes that should work as intended. Although I have never tried the scenario you described exactly, the whitelist rules will have higher priority than the blacklist rules. I do recommend testing this to be sure though!
