Email Whitelist Review

 9:23 pm on Jan 13, 2009 (gmt 0)

So there I was, researching news on the latest increases in email spam and then I came across this little tip from SpamCop...

Lots of users have their own email address in their personal whitelist. This is a problem because spammers often send you spam that is forged with your own email address as the return address.

Ya, I had all of my email addresses in my Whitelist, doh!

Yeah, but I send myself stuff all the time... ;)

A decent SPF implementation along with Bayesian spam filtering has allowed me to take my own addresses off the list. They all pass SPF tests now so there's no need for the white-listing.
