How do I manage the customized blacklist and whitelist in the anti-Spam System?

The anti-spam system provided by the Center allows users to use notification mail or the mail reporter to set customized blacklists and whitelists. Email from whitelisted senders are always considered valid, while email from blacklisted senders are marked as spam. (Since the Center’s SMTP server is whitelisted by default, adding this server on your customized blacklist has no effect). Users can add important contacts to the whitelist to avoid emails from said contacts being sent to the spam folder. Whitelisting can be done in the following way:

I. By notification email

  • {{wiki:notice.png}} [Bug Report 2011/03/11] If the email address is longer than 55 characters, an error will occur when configuring the blacklist or whitelist, since the address will be cut off at 55 characters. This problem has been reported to the vendor. Please use the 2, web management interface to manage your black and white lists until the bug is fixed. Thank you!

Configuring the whitelist

To configure the whitelist from the daily anti-spam notification email (as seen below), follow the steps below to select the specific emails and tell the system you wish to accept all emails coming from these senders without filtering.

  1. Select emails from senders you wish to add to the whitelist.
  2. Select “White+Resend.”
  3. Press “Submit” If successful, the following will be displayed.

  • {{wiki:notice.png}} To confirm a successful addition to the list, you can check directly in the 2, web management interface to see if the sender has been successfully added to the black or white list.

Enter the settings screen

  • For details, please see Mail Reporter End-User Guide v3.9.5 Note: 2016/3/11 - there is an error on page 19 of the document. Personal users may not use the following 3 conditions:
    • 「xxxx@」: Match sender name only.
