shouldn't 'internal' domain email before excluded from rbl checking by default?

Hi All,

I had this problem where one person in a company couldn't send an email to the person sitting next to them. Both sender and receiver were using the same company domain for their emails, both sender and receiver had the same smtp setting (that of their ISP).

Reason: the mail server of the ISP had been blacklisted by spamcop.

Solution: add the domain to /etc/rblbypass which (I understand) means that if the sender domain is the same as the recipient domain, don't run rbl checks.

Two points I'd like to make
1. I reckon it would be a good idea for all domains to be include by default in /etc/rblbypass. Makes sense, doesn't it, for 'internal' company mail? Is this possible to setup?
2. It would be good if this feature were a checkbox options in WHM, and not buried in a command line file.

Comments anyone?

Please disregard most of my email above :)

When I said "add the domain to /etc/rblbypass which (I understand) means that if the sender domain is the same as the recipient domain, don't run rbl checks."

I was wrong. Adding the domain here will exclude ALL incoming mail from being rbl checked.

But it would still be really good if it were possible to exclude mail sent to/from the same domain from the rbl checks. Any takers?
