How can we improve?

Spam email that was Whitelist positive

I have a spam email that is getting through as a whitelist entry. I have scoured the whitelist and cannot figure out which entry it matches. It would be REALLY nice to have a place where I could enter the "From" email address and see which whitelist entry (regular or Auto) it is associated with.

    I'm not sure what version of MailEssentials you're using, so this may not be possible. However, in MailEssentials 2012 and in version 12, you can export the whitelist (not the auto-whitelist, but the manually-entered whitelist). You could then search the export file for the address (and, if not found, then the domain) in question.

    In MailEssentials 2012, the configuration's auto-whitelist screen and manual whitelist screen both allow you to search, so you could directly search for the address/domain in question.

    I agree that these methods are not convenient, and they require MailEssentials administrator access, but they may achieve what you want, provided they are available in your version of MailEssentials.

    I would also like to see an option on the whitelist screens to add an X-header to the whitelisted messages. That way, it would be clear that the message bypassed the anti-spam filters because it was whitelisted (and, preferably, why it was whitelisted -- manual whitelist, auto-whitelist, IP whitelist, etc).

    Excellent idea, which unfortunately will probably go nowhere :(
