How to Blacklist and Whitelist Email Addresses in SpamAssassin

Edward Tollemach , London, UK – #Justhost – dangerous company!!!! – My website designer set me up with hosting by #Justhost. He was an idiot! Don’t ever use this company if you rely on your website for any part of your business or personal income! There’s down time almost every week – site and email. Whenever I raise a ticket with them, they wait until it’s back up and then email with a screen shot (sometimes days later). Technical support are incompetent and rude – an unreliable service. They also took a payment from my credit card to renew my SSL certificate, and then didn’t bother to renew the certificate on the site. They didn’t care about this and left me without SSL over the Christmas period. Then they managed to self certify, so it came up as untrustworthy, they still haven’t got this right. Luckily they don’t have my domain name so I can move everything to proper dedicated hosting soon – once I have a new website from a proper designer.

    Having many issues with good email going into spam folder, in the last few weeks. Not sure what's going on, some are in the middle of conversation, and the reply is going into spam. Have no other local filters or rules. Using apple mail.

    I noticed there were only 5 fields each on the black and white lists. So, does that mean you can only have 5 each or once you save it, it's listed for life and you can retype over it and add more?

    So if I have 500 domains I want to block I need to add them individually? Or is there a copy and paste option?
