    Default [SOLVED] Junk Mail Options - Tuning for single user

    Scenario:
    Client Version: 6.0.6_GA_2324.RHEL5
    Client Release: 20100406131453
    Build Date: 20100406-1324

    I have a mailbox that have to receive only from certain known senders.
    The rest, whatever it comes from, should be refused; good messages, SPAM, whatever...

    Now, I used filters up to version 6.0.6, ok but maybe with the new user Junk Mail options, White list and Black list, the all thing can be stremlined and better to manage.

    It is logic to put the permitted senders in the white list, that's ok.

    But I tried wildcards in the black list, like a *, or even *@* and doesn't seem to work; messages still gets to the Inbox. Either wildcards are not parsed or I use the wrong syntax.

    The logic is: blacklist the "all univers", whitelist only these.

    Any suggestion? Thanks.

    We already use the Postfix approach, but for other purposes.

    It's not something a user can either use or even possibly access, isn't it?

    But thank you anyway for the answer.

    Anybody else?

    How about a Filter using the "Address in" condition?

    Address in From not in My Contacts -> Discard

    Thumbs up ewilen!
    That does the trick.

    As usual if I had checked thoroughly the new filter condition AFTER upgrade to Guns&Roses... oh well.

    Thanks a lot.

    Hm, I think that one's been around for a while. Anyway, I'm glad my suggestion helped you.
