How do YOU handle whitelisting?

    I have been running cPanel for a few months now and I see things that are different from some of my legacy servers. cPanel is great, but the mail for me seems to be a bit troublesome.

    I am wondering how you handle whitelisting email addresses and domains for incoming emails for your customers?

    I have spam assassin on, it does not auto delete email, and it delivers it to a spam box on squirrelmail. This is exactly how I want this to happen, but my issue is how to allow users to whitelist (and blacklist) email addresses. We host some companies with well over 100 people using email per domain, I need a solution that allows each user to independently whitelist/blacklist their own email.

    Am I not seeing an easy way to do this? Is this not possible without addons? On my non-cpanel servers I just use a squirrelmail plugin that adds whitelist/blacklists to the spamassassin file in each users home directory. In cPanel's case it appears there is only a spamassasin file for each domain.

    Please any feed back, comments, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    White/Black/Graylisting is typically handled by Boxtrapper rather than SpamAssassin in cPanel environments.

    David,

    Does this mean that they have to be using boxtrapper service? Most clients will not want people to have to reply to a verification email to allow them to send email.

    Thanks again,

    Ryan
