Description Kevin A. McGrail 2017-08-10 01:53:05 UTC
With AWL, you could whitelist/blacklist an email with the spamassassin executable:


     --add-addr-to-whitelist=addr      Add addr to persistent address whitelist
     --add-addr-to-blacklist=addr      Add addr to persistent address blacklist
     --remove-addr-from-whitelist=addr Remove addr from persistent address list

Those commands need to be clarified as AWL only (for now)

And extend them for all persistent blacklist/whitelist engines (AWL and/or TXrep and/or xyz)

We should also clarify that the command for whitelist, weights the address in the whitelist to the extreme.  However, new emails could evolve the entry.

also that TxRep does not support SA-Grey 3dr party plugin, is this planned to be added to TxRep
Comment 2 Kevin A. McGrail 2017-08-10 14:56:47 UTC
I've never even heard of that plugin so I doubt there is any work planned around supporting TXRep with SA-Grey.  Perhaps open a ticket and if you can submit even a framework of code, that would be helpful

SAGrey checks for AWL like this:

  ($permsgstatus->get_names_of_tests_hit() =~ /\bAWL\b/)

it's SAGrey that needs to be updated rather than TxRep.

> it's SAGrey that needs to be updated rather than TxRep.

Actually that's not quite correct because TxRep can do score averaging for IP addresses etc, so it would exempt more than an AWL hit.
