is per user whitelist/blacklist config and a default whitelist/blacklist possible?

I've tested the per user configs (see previous message below) and it
seems to work okay. If anyone has any thoughts on this, I'd appreciate it.

Next question: Is it possible to have a combination of per user AND a
default system wide config for blacklist/whitelist rules, so that
user at domain can whitelist and blacklist individual addresses or domains,
but a default ruleset containing common whitelisted addresses is
maintained for the server to allow standard stuff to come through
untouched unless the use specifically blacklists it.
