you can add a line like this to your blacklist or whitelist ruleset
From: blockemail at example.com and To: youremail at example.com yes
The problem that i am running into with this as a whitelist rule (probably the same for blacklist) is
that if you just whitelist to youremail at example.com and the email was sent to or cced to youremail at example.com and
youremail2 at example.com and youemail3 at example.com and so on it will get whitelisted for all of them.
does anyone know a way around that?
if your not sure what i am asking, here is another example
I have a user named foo and he wants to be exluded from the spam filter altogether because of too many false positives
so i add this line to my whitelist
To: foo at foobar.com yes
Problem with this is if a spam email was sent to foo, mike, harry, bob, jane, frank since foo is in the whitelist
all these people will receive this spam messege no matter the spamassassin score.
not sure if we have any other way around that problem
