Allow/Block List

Allow/Block List:


Effectiveness: High


Advantages: Allows certain messages that have a word or phrase you have chosen to bypass the filter.  Messages containing words or phrases you have chosen can be automatically moved to your spam folder as well.  Headers are also analyzed which allows for ip addresses and special header tags to also be processed.


How it works:  After you have added a word or phrase to your allow or block list any message containing that word or phrase will be allowed to pass through the filter if added to your allow list or blocked if added to your block list.  This can decrease false positives and increase the accuracy of classifying spam.


Limitations: Word phrases to allow or block messages must be carefully chosen so that only the proper messages are allowed or blocked by word phrase.


Recommendations:  We recommend enabling this filter for almost all users.  Be careful with the word phrases you put in your allow list so you don't inadvertently allow spam messages through.
