Wildcard for Whitelist or Blocklist
I get a lot of email from one domain, but for some reason, GFI always blocks that set of email messages, even though I have Whitelisted specific emails. Is there a way to create a "wildcard" Whitelist, like *.aetna.com or *.roku.com ?
Yes, it is possible to use wildcards in blocklist/whitelist.
Also please note that the priority of the antispam plugin has an effect if whitelist/blocklist actually can do their job. Such plugins typically have a high priority.
Please note that changing antispam priorities can affect your spam detection rates so we suggest being careful.
Simply go to the GFI MailEssentials configuration AntiSpam and select Anti-Spam and then Whitelist or Blocklist.
Add the domain to the list eg *@*.domain.com or *@domain.com based on your preference.

Thank you for the response. How do I do a wildcard? Can you give me a step-by-step?
I realize that if I am too generic with my wildcards that more spam can get through, but my two examples in the original post are applicable for me.
Ironically, the message from GFI was blocked as "Suspected Spam" by the GFI blocker.
