Blacklist / Whitelist

From this page you can control which IP addresses are blacklisted (not allowed) from mail services on this machine, or whitelisted (trusted) to access the mail services on this machine.

To get started with Blacklists, click the Security button on the main tool bar, then select Blacklist from the Security folder tree view.

To get started with Whitelist, click the Security button on the main tool bar, then select Whitelist from the Security folder tree view.

Note: Whitelisted IP addresses are not subject to relay restrictions which you may have imposed. Exercise caution when granting whitelist status to a server, and be sure that you know what services on that server may send mail through your server.

New icon - Click on this button to add an IP address or an IP address range to the list.

Edit icon - Click on a row to edit the whitelist or blacklist settings for the entry.

Delete icon - Click on this link to remove an entry from the list.


Adding / Editing an Entry

IP Address - Enter a single IP address in dotted quad notation (X.X.X.X) in this box if you want to add only a single IP (ex: 192.168.1.26).

IP Range - Enter a range of IP addresses in the two boxes, and all IP addresses that are contained in the range will be added (ex: 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.1.255).

Blacklist or Whitelist SMTP / POP / IMAP / Greylisting - Check the boxes for the protocols you wish to include in the blacklist or whitelist entry. The Greylisting checkbox is only available for whitelisted IPs, and if checked, the whitelisted IP will not be greylisted.
