    Boxtrapper is great. But some of my clients
    email reminders to themselves, and want to
    see their own posts to a special-interest
    mailing list.

    Boxtrapper always rejects emails from yourself,
    Queuing possibly forged email to self ...

    Adding your own email to the white list does
    not help. Under Cpanel | Boxtrapper | Manage |
    username | Configure Settings, there is an
    Email addresses going to this account (comma
    seperated list) That is set by default to the
    user's full email address. If I change it to
    something else (garbage) there is no change in
    behavior. What is this setting for? (I was
    hoping altering it would stop the rejection
    of "email to self".

    The whitelist file looks clean (no blank lines
    or phantom "from") and I have tried on fresh
    accounts. Adding "from"
    does not help. Adding "subject tomyself" to
    the whitelist, and and putting tomyself in the
    email's subject line does not help. In Cpanel |
    Queue clicking to whitelist and deliver such
    emails just adds to the
    white list a second time, which doesn't help.
    It seems that Queuing "email to self" without
    a Challenge message going out is hardwired and
    there is no way to configure around it. I have
    users giving up on Boxtrapper because of this.
    Is there ANY way around it?

    How would I report this as a bug? Who wrote
