[Resolved] Greylisting loses Amazon email

Recommended Posts

My wife has a Kindle. When she makes a purchase, Amazon sends a confirmation email.

Amazon's mail server retries 6 times then gives up.

Is there anyway to adjust the sensitivity of Greylisting?

I've repeatedly gone into "Manage Greylist -- Rejected Entries" and ticked the Unblock - Allow box on the Amazon related entries but the problem persists.

Put both the Amazon "From" address, and "Return-Path" address on her SpamCop whitelist. That should bypass greylisting.

Put the exact address on the whitelist. No wildcards or anything. Just the address.

Just so there's no confusion... I work for the reporting side of SpamCop, which is a completely separate company from the Email Service you have your account with. If the problem is not about spam reporting, all I can offer is advice.

...And, if I'm reading it correctly and there have been no changes since, your advice is supported "officially" by trevorb's reply in SpamCop Forum article "New Feature: Greylisting *UPDATED*" (last paragraph). :) <g>

...mgolden, please let us know whether or not this works for you by adding a reply here.

It appears that adding "digital-no-reply at amazon.com" to the whitelist takes care of the problem.

Thank you for your assistance.
