SpamD whitelist providers



  • Anyone using a shared whitelist? Wanna share?  Better question, spamd config page lets you put in a 'command' for a whitelist provider, anyone populating google/hotmail etc's round robin servers with this command?  I found a list of gmail and hotmail IP's online and posted it to http://chrisuthe.com/spamd/whitelist.txt  if I find a good way of generating a large list through a crontab on my web server I'll keep updating it.

    Subthought: i wonder if we can create something so the dynamic whitelist created by spamd could be shared amongst others, or uploaded to a site and concatenated on to the master list so that we could all pool our whitelist efforts to one big list..

    How do I know my whitelist is being loaded properly short of connecting from one of the whitelisted IP's? (i'm not sure my blacklists are loading properly, for that matter either… )

    sub-sub-sub thought.. it's a serious bummer spamd only looks at IP's and can't whitelist based on sender address. I find it interesting that the sender address is listed in the spamd database though, wonder if a script could be written that goes through and checks the db for 'safe' addresses and whitelists the IP's..



  • Spamd doesn't work at the application layer, so there will never be a way of white-listing by email address,

    As for white-listing, I manually created my own white-lists for gmail (hint: look up their spf records).  At some point I'd like to see the white-list gui extended a little more than it is right now but its not been a huge priority.

    I understand the first point, I'm suggesting a script that goes through and looks for pre-defined e-mail addresses in the mail and whitelists servers based on those addresses. I've got a script that grabs the addresses off Gmails SPF records once a day, and that's working pretty well now. I'm glad you're interested in beefing up the GUI for spamd, let me know when you want to get around to it, and i'll see if I can't find some $$$ for a bounty.
