  1. hi - I'm just trialling the greylisting feature and it seems a handy tool. just wondering what the "# Blocked" column is denotiong? I was assuming it represented the number of rejected/greylisted emails "from" that address so far? But I think that's a mistake on my part... if the same message was resent from the same user that would be the trigger to "pass it on" wouldn't it... it's just that I got sent a valid email overnight that got stuck in the greylist .. Once I manually "allowed" it I got the next "resent email" fine.... any comments? :^) cheers brad
  2. >fixed for you thanks >You've pretty much defined the answer ... whitelisting is doing what you've asked it to do, bypass all the >filtering actions. yeah I thought as much.. just hoping there was a way to over ride whitelist for extremely spammy stuff >And I'll ask .. have you checked the Announcements section and/or the Forum FAQ as far as using >your e-mail address for a 'name' in here? my apologies... I can't see how to edit that in "my controls"? If I've stuffed that up please delete my forum account and I'll register again paying more attention to the text users see as "my name"
  3. apologies for the typo in the "title".... can't seem to edit that... I think I understand the general rule that mail from a "whitelisted" address is always passed on... but I'm getting a steady flow of spam "from" whitelisted addresses with very high scores from spam assassin. (IE where a spammer has used/guessed a "from" address I have whitelisted, or has used my address as the "from" address) EG http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z1501634654z2...ddfbe73dbea180z says: <snip> X-SpamCop-Checked: X-SpamCop-Disposition: Blocked SpamAssassin=36 X-SpamCop-Whitelisted: x so I still get the mail.. Is it possible to set a "max" threshold for spam assassin (say 30 ?) IE so that mail with scores "above" this will still be moved to held mail regardless of whitelist settings? If any of my genuine whitelisted correspondents can trigger that sort of spam assassin score in a "real" email it deserves to be blocked :^) I appreciate this may not be terchnically possible if the whitelist check is done before anything else, but the fact that the message includes the spamassassion "info" along with the "whitelist" info gives me hope that the two bits of data can be used together!! thanks for a great tool .. I haven't seen a virus email for 3 years and I know you catch about 150+ spam a day for me - so this is no big deal... just thought I'd ask... cheers brad
