Proper way to black list and whitelist

I've found that using *@* doesn't work very well and would
like to know why and what alternatives we can use.  Using the rules files
on the other hand is a good idea. PITA domains are put in /etc/mail/access
- which is my approach.

I have read how to black list in SA, MS and Sendmail.  What is the best
way to BL and WL domains?  Like *@* and *

Edit the spam.assassin.prefs.conf and put a bunch of whitelist_from and
blacklist_from entries.   Or create a white list and black list files and
point MailScanner.conf to them.

Is Definitely Not Spam = /etc/MailScanner/rules/spam.whitelist.rules
Is Definitely Spam = /etc/MailScanner/rules/spam.blacklist.rules

MS 4.11-1
SA 2.43
RH 7.3
SM 8.12
