[Resolved] Ebay email getting 'held'- frustrating!

Recommended Posts

I'm having a helluva time with the notification that Ebay payments were made to me, delivered into my inbox. As you can see below, the sending IP [at] Ebay/Paypal isn't BL'd, but spam Assasain is snagging it on various things. I haven't seen a way in SC Mail to white/allow certain subjects and "whitelisting the sender" only does the buyer's email, NOT the Ebay/Paypal IP/address.

Dear Brandon Plank,

This email confirms that you have received an eBay Instant Payment of X USD from X

What do some of you suggest? In my deluge of spam, I sometimes que these for reporting, because I don't see them in with all the other subject lines (I cancel the reports though).

Thx

I suggest that you whitelist "payment[at]paypal.com" without quotes.

Would that work? I thought the whitelist only listed the sender, not the reply-to.

Petzl- I keep S.A [at] 2, because there was too much slipping through.

It should. IIRC, the SpamCop Email System Whitelist should work on Return-Path, From, and Reply-to Header Lines.

If the white list does not work, you could set up a filter that would work, but it would require running it each time you log in to WebMail. The filters do not get applied when the mail is recieved. There are other threads on the filter topic you may want to look at.
