Blacklist / Whitelist and Message Filters in Webmail for DC Metro, IL, MA, NY and PA

 

Introduction


The Whitelist/Blacklist steps below are for webmail in the AJAX interface. 

For Webmail in the Standard HTML interface, you must create message filters . Message filters are an independent feature and is available in both standard HTML and AJAX interfaces.  With a message filter, you can effectively blacklist an address, but you cannot whitelist.

 All changes made in webmail are effective immediately 

Resolution Steps



The Proper Way to Whitelist / Blacklist a Domain

    • Use the domain listed in the Return-path header

    • For example, suppose we want to whitelist or blacklist a newsletter from 6pm.com which happens to have the following headers:

      Return-path: bounce-17_HTML-14994285-32896-1058807-6610@bounce.email.6pm.com
      From: "6pm.com" <email@
      email.6pm.com>
      Subject: Nine West + Hush Puppies + UGG and more!

    • The correct string to add is bounce.email.6pm.com. Just using 6pm.com or email.6pm.com  will not achieve the desired result

    • Strings containing syntax like @6pm.com or *.6pm.com won't work either

      • The @ and * symbols do not act as wildcard characters, since technically they are used in valid email addresses
