About Blocking and Allowing

Blocking: No spam checking is performed for domains or email addresses that are added to the block list, they are automatically blocked.

Allowing: Content-based spam checking is not performed for domains or email addresses that are added to the allow list, however front line tests are such as RBL, SPF, greylisting, virus checking and attachment scanning are still applied.

The following are important to note when using allow and block lists:

  • An email address cannot be allowed and blocked at the same time. If you add a sender's email address to a block list that is already on an allow list, they will automatically be removed from the allow list.

  • Per-recipient allow lists and block lists overrule global allow lists and block lists for a domain.

  • Allowed senders bypass the SpamTitan anti-spam engine, however, they will still be scanned for viruses and banned attachments.

  • Allow and block list sender testing is performed after a message is received, therefore, front line tests such as RBL, SPF or greylisting may still apply.
