herouth Posted May 30, 2009 Share Posted May 30, 2009 Hi all. I have turned on graylisting in my account after being flooded with more spams than I can sanely report in a day. I am a member (and moderator) of two Yahoo Groups. Now, there is a strange thing about graylisting and Yahoo Groups messages. The graylisting doesn't go by the "From" header of the mail. Instead, it goes by the "Return-Path" header (plus IP). For Yahoo Groups messages, this header looks like this: Return-Path: <sentto-5325055-5265-1243710161-herouth=spamcop.net[at]returns.groups.yahoo.com> And the string of digits and dashes in the middle there is apparently unique for every message. This means that the graylist delays each and every Yahoo Groups message sent to me. Eventually, of course, I get the messages, but this is rather annoying. Does anybody know of a way to work around this? I don't seem to have access to the "allowed" section of the graylist - I can allow blocked originators, but I can't see what's allowed. And even if I had access - I'd need the ability to put wildcards in allowed originators. Or am I mistaken and the Allowed list is the normal spamcop whilelist? I believe the whitelist is based on the "From" header, but I may be mistaken. Anyway, it doesn't allow wildcards, either. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
