If you are thinking that way, then no-reply at domain.com in your whitelist
would have still defeated your purpose, since "no-reply at domain.com" is
just as easy to spoof as "billybob at domain.com".

If you only want email From no-reply at domain.com, or To
no-reply at domain.com to come through, but anything else from *@domain.com
AND to *@domain.com, then try what I mentioned and test it:

blacklist.rules -

FromTo: no-reply at domain.com no
From: *@domain.com and To: *@domain.com   yes
FromTo: default no

If your desired goal isn't reached, let us know.  I'm sure someone
smarter than me can offer a solution.
