    hi! is it possible to whitelist incoming mail while using rbl's ?

    i'm using 3 rbl (ordb/spamcop/spamhaus) to filter some spam but a few customers are having problems receiving emails from certain hosts...

    thanks

    At what point are you invoking the RBL's, usually whitelisting at the SMTP level (aka: qmail) bypasses any RBL or spam filtering since the MTA gets ahold of email first for transport inbound/outbound.

    So most likely the answer to your question is yes, whitelisting will bypass your spam filters.

    AFAIK, the only want to whitelist an IP blocked by an RBL is to run your own whitelist dns server.

    rblsmtpd (used by MAPS in the Plesk server config) supports a command line that will check a whitelist server. If you aren't using it, well... I dunno :)
