You can add trusted hosts to a white list and configure the spam checks you want to bypass for each entry in the list. This ensures that trusted mail (such as newsletters or bulk mail from your whitelisted senders) is not blocked. The White List tab on the SpamLogic Settings page displays which senders have been whitelisted and which spam checks are bypassed for each entry.
You can add Mail Servers or Email addresses to the white list. You can specify:
|IP address ranges||192.168.1.0-192.168.1.255|
|CIDR notation networks||192.168.5.0/24|
|Mail server hostnames||hostname.company.com|
|White list entry||Type||Includes...|
|192.168.*||Mail Server||any IP address in the range 192.168.xx.xx|
|192.168.1.*||Mail Server||any IP address in the range 192.168.1.*|
|*||Mail Server/Email||not supported.|

Example 2: I want to add 192.168.1.124-192.168.1.255 to the white list and select certain spam checks for all IP addresses in this range. However, I also want to add 192.168.1.164-192.168.1.192 with other spam methods selected. These IP address ranges have overlapping entries between 192.168.1.124 to 192.168.1.192. What happens?
All spam checks that you select for both IP address ranges will apply to the overlapping entries.
