Today I figured out how to specify whitelist and blacklist email addresses in SpamAssassin.
At the end of /etc/spamassassin/local.cf I added two lines:
include whitelist include blacklist
Then in the /etc/spamassassin/whitelist file I added some email specifications, e.g.:
jj5@sixsigma:~$ cat /etc/spamassassin/whitelist # Allow email from system services, e.g. from # firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com whitelist_from *@*.progclub.* # Similarly for blackbrick: whitelist_from *@*.blackbrick.com
The /etc/spamassassin/blacklist file exists and is ready to go, but I haven’t blacklisted anything yet:
jj5@sixsigma:~$ cat /etc/spamassassin/blacklist # No email addresses blacklisted yet. #blacklist_from firstname.lastname@example.org
There’s some more information on Whitelising a user.
At some point I hope to write a script that processes my users’ maildirs and whitelists everyone they’ve emailed.
