    Hello Michel,

    Per feature whitelists will be considered for future versions. In the meantime there is a potential work around which I believe has already been shared with you, but I’ll share it for the benefit of everyone.

    As a short term work around, you can use a custom SIEVE script for the SPF test. You will need to disable the built-in test, and replace it with something like.

    require [“securitygateway”,“reject”,“fileinto”,“envelope”];

    if not ip :is [“80.168.44.51”, “195.8.69.18”, “213.253.3.180”]
    {
    // cut paste text of system generated sieve script here
    if allof(not whitelisted,not auth “succeeded”,not ip “des”) {
    if lookup “spf” “fail” {
    fileinto “spam”;
    }
    if lookup “spf” “softfail” {
    spamscore “2.0”;
    }
    }

    }

    Thanks,

    Arron

    Hi Arron,

    There is not an actual section called EXCLUDE MESSAGES FROM WHITELISTED IP ADDRESSES - just "Exclude messages from whitelisted senders".

    If that is what you are referring to, then that is what I refer to in my Point (c) in the original post. The problem with that is that the IP and Hostnames whitelists are whitelists which tell SG : do NOT do any anti-spam checking on this IP/hostname, so, Yes, it means emails from a whitelisted IP/Hostname do NOT go through SPF checking, but it also means the same emails do NOT go through any of the other anti-spam checks. Results - hundreds of emails that have stacked up on the backup MX queue get delivered without a single anti-spam check on them !

    What is needed is an exclusion list specifically for SPF checking and no other checks.
