Re: Greylisting by subnetwork

Greylisting was great until the mass email domain hosters started up - now it just doesn't work.

If we could find a way to use greylisting for mass senders, or better to greylist / whitelist them, this would be ideal.

before the 'newmessage.save' add one of these lines

newMessage.HeaderValue("Reply to") = "other@example.com"
newMessage.HeaderValue("Return-Path") = "other@example.com"
