Automatic whitelisting of local to external recpients

Post by rodolfor » 2008-02-12 11:49

It would be useful if the recipients of email sent from internal to external could be automatically inserted in the white lists.
I think to two flag (for the two whaitlists of hamail) at domain account.

Yeah, I'd go for this. I don't think I would whitelist a message based on the external address only, but it would be nice if it could bypass the greylist at least, or have options for which anti-spam measures are bypassed.

yes, you have my vote too. i've used it onto my old argosoft installation with mailfilter and was very usefull. i'd like to see the same on hmailserver to bypass some check as redrummy wrote.

would be nice also the opposite: if spam is found automatically add the sender onto a user's blacklist (of course whitelist has priority onto blacklist ).

all could be done by rules with some new condition (if sender is in white/black list ) and action ( like "stop spam check" for whitelist ) . Blacklist can be done with the existing action such as deleted, subject changes or similar.

what do you think?

Yep, my vote on this one. Good idea to automatically whitelist those that are already known!

It would be nice to add also an option (at domain level) allowing incoming mail only for sender I have emailed before :twisted: .
This could bypass every other antispam techniques: it is a sort of authorization to the sender before I could receive email from.

I also think it''d be nicee... Or actually one step further, whitelist maybe user based. I mean if internalAcc1@hmailDomain.com sends an email to a@b.com; a@b.com gets whitlisted for internalAcc1 but still unable to send mails to other accounts unless it doesn't fit SPAM requirements...

One addition:

I guess such a feature like this drives hMailServer to a system like SenderID program in hotmail. They are making a user based whitelist.
As well in yahoo when you send an e-mail, you got the option to save recipents to the contact list where you can also use as a filter maybe.

Maybe with a similar system you can allow hMail to be more strict againts SPAM? Donno just an idea...

This sounds like good assp thinking.

assp works on the basis that anyone your internal email goes to must be ok and will white list them for a period of time.

Its an easy system for us with ASSP loaded in front of our crap email server (i want to use hmailserver but you know what corporates are like, frustrating so far ayway) Anyway our crap email server has duff verification so we have a duplicate list of email users in assp and authenticate local users from that.

I have already implemented this feature using COM and VBS so I would like this as well.

Recipients from local to external are registered at each deliviery and kept in the the hmailserver whitelist for x days.

Works well ...

I am going to provide the code, just have to extract the functions it from my scripts. I also have to check them as I have a small installation and there are some things different.

There is also the feature to whitelist all external list members in this script.

Please give me some days...

i wanna bump this feature.
i like the andyp works and i'm using it as well but i think hmailserver needs this feature without scripting.

Not so complicated, just a Checkbox on whitelist tab like " Enable Auto Whitelist "

every mail sent from a local account add the recipent into whitelist.

So if you want more details or options you can still use the script. ( like the expirations, bla bla )

Hmailserver is an ease of use mailserver and this feature is very common on quite every modern mailserver. The andyp script it's very easy to setup ( damn i was able too!! :D ) but not everyone use this feature yet due to scripting.

what do you think?

The script is only useful for small installations, because I have used a file as a store.

I would like this script directly in hmailserver as well.

Hi Martin, thank you for this information.
Is it possible to import E-Mail-Adresses to the whitelist?
Could this be done directly on the database in the table hm_whitelist? If yes is it supported to do this?

Yes, there is a script in the user contributed scripts section to import CVS files if i remember correctly. You will need to restart hMail's service under windows once imported though.
