    When using boxtrapper is there a way to change the filter order of WHITE, IGNORE, BLACK list. I'm just a Cpanel user and boxtrapper works very well for what I need, but it would be great to check the WHITE list first and filter through allowable mail then check for BLACK, and final IGNORE. Using a wild card in IGNORE list I can dismiss all mail I don't expect and greatly decrease the chance of being blacklisted myself by decreasing number of bounced emails.

    This is a suggestion for Cpanel or whoever owns Boxtrapper to consider, or make filter order user selectable in the next release. If its possible to do in current release HOW ?

    Just thought this would be of interest at cpanel. I have one mailbox that is basically all spam now, but would like to keep the few that are valid. By changing the filter order to checking the WHITE list first and passing those through, I can blackhole all the rest with a few entries in the IGNORE check list.

    This small change, along with some better instructions for users could be a big help to reduce bandwidth on host servers.
