Hey,

So I have read a few posts and threads about whitelist sender verify but they all seem to be very old. I am using WHM 11.38 and since the last update allot of main features have changed. For example its very visual to change any exim settings and allot of changes to enable whitelists I can't find the supposed defaults.

Please any help to set this up is appreciated.

Dear DarkxPunk,

I don't think there are any changes made with whitelist sender verification in exim on the new version of cPanel.

Are you facing any particular issues with it ?

Hello :)

You can find the access list options for Exim under the "Access Lists" tab in:

"WHM Home » Service Configuration » Exim Configuration Manager"

The particular option you are looking for is named "Sender verification bypass IP addresses".

Thank you.

It is quite different compared to all the guides. For example they say (add to the top in WHM) the problem is its just a listing of feilds, not a big editable block. Second they say find line x and it does not exist within the page. I even SSH stright to the config file and bump into the same issues. The guides dont match the reality.

The issue I have is I cannot aquire the IP, I need to block on a domain basis. I know you can with the whitelist system everyone reconmends. I just need a more uptodate guide.

Thanks for any help.

You could utilize the following options under the "Access Lists" tab in "WHM Home » Service Configuration » Exim Configuration Manager":

Only-verify-recipient
Hosts or IP addresses that should be exempt from all spam checks at SMTP time, except recipient verification. Hosts or IP addresses you enter here are stored in /etc/trustedmailhosts.
Backup MX hosts
Hosts with reverse DNS from which connections are allowed regardless of rate limits.
Both of these options accept hosts entries.

Thank you.

I think the OP might be running into the same issue I am.

I'm trying to add the ability to white list senders based on their email address / sending domain name and not their mail server name / IP.

Instructions found below just don't match up to the current layout of exim.conf when you reach the section about finding "require verify = sender/callout". There's similar text, but different enough to make me leary of making any changes based on those instructions and I haven't been able to find more up-to-date instructions either so far.

Web Hosting Talk - View Single Post - Exim RBL Whitelisting per e-mail address ??? how to?

Any up-to-date person know how to make these changes in the current exim.conf?

It'd be nice if this was a built-in feature in the WHM interface because sometimes you don't want to whitelist an entire mail server that's blocked by an RBL for sending spam when you really only need to receive mail from one domain on that server.

Did anyone come up with a solution to this? SpamCop is listing Yahoo Mail servers with a vengeance lately and having a way to whitelist certain addresses would help me greatly.
