Proposal For New Whitelists

I would like a capability of using new Whitelists in the following ways:

1. "email filtering whitelist", on a checkmark basis (like the IP Based

email filtering blacklists). This would include: IronPort's various Bonded

Sender lists; country-based lists (for example, EU countries for those EU

users interested in suing for EU spam) from services.net,

rbl.cluecentral.net, and blackholes.us; and others as they become available.

I personally would only check the box for IronPort's Bonded Sender Plus.

2. "personal domain whitelist" would be the new name of the current

"personal whitelist", on a new "personal whitelists" page. It would

continue to use the current rules, matching from the right side of the

"From" or "Sender" field, including matching beyond the [at] sign. Attempts to

report spam from domains on this list would be defaulted off by the

reporting system, and challenged with a confirmation dialog in interactive

mode.

3. "personal ip whitelist" would keep us from reporting our own mailservers

from Held Mail, which has been happening to more and more people recently.

It would also be on a new "personal whitelists" page. Attempts to report IP

Addresses on this list would be defaulted off by the reporting system, and

challenged with a confirmation dialog in interactive mode.

4. "personal localpart whitelist" would keep us from reporting messages from

various RFC2142-compliant addresses, like Postmaster and Abuse, plus

MAILER-DAEMON and <>, on a proactive basis. It would also be on a new

"personal whitelists" page. It would match from the left side of the "From"

or "Sender" field, including matching beyond the [at] sign. Attempts to report

spam from localparts on this list would be defaulted off by the reporting

system, and challenged with a confirmation dialog in interactive mode.

Of course, these would need to be countered by "personal blacklists",

including "personal domain blacklist", "personal ip blacklist", and

"personal localpart blacklist".

Also, precedence rules would be that a more specific (longer) listing has

more weight than a less specific (shorter) listing, and in case of a tie,

white has more weight than black.

What do you think?
