Is whitelisting by domain really a good idea? If you want to whitelist a
domain it means you'll regularly receive mail from them.
You would need to trust all of the users in the foreign domain to not
send/open any viruses to your site! And chances are that viruses come in
from people you communicate with, not from strangers.
