Yeap, I sure did misunderstood you :-)
You are perfectly correct. Adding the entry to the MyAutoBL will not alter what SpamFilter does, so the emails will still be delivered to your Inbox.

The use of this extra table was added per user request, and as it does indeed help cleaning out the user's quarantine a bit, we liked the idea as well and implemented. It is was in no way meant as a means to actually block emails, since that was done already by the existing emails/domains blacklists. This MyAutoBL would however be more specific and could pinpoint blocking specific emails to specific users however... so we may have SpamFilter use it in the future as well to block incoming spam as you're hinting!

Hi Roberto,

I've been asked about this feature again by another client. Is there any likelihood of a to|from blacklist feature being introduced at some point in the future?

Thanks.

lyndon,

We're "trying" to release a new, long overdue, official build within the next couple of weeks. We've always postponed this as new features are continuously added, making it hard to have a "stable", proven build ready. If you can ping me back in 304 weeks, we'll see what can be done for this latter request.

it seems to me that this is being thought of all wrong. i think the answer needs to come from the frontend GUI not the backend filter.
The problem with the filter doing the deletion:-
user receives a spam from a known (faked) email address, he then deletes it from quarantine. Now that KNOWN user can not send to the user. and as you are requesting it deletes the message rather than quarantineing it, there is no way that the user can get the message back.
 
The Answer is with the GUI. simply create another DB (i would recomend against adding tables to the spamfilter one as it is easier to manage if all your custom tables exist in there own DB) then at the front end webpage create a link on the senders email address that gives the user the option to "Hide this address", Hide this domain" then store store it into your custom table along with the users name, the web script then marks the message for deletion, and reloads the page.
 
you need to customize the SQL query for the page load so that it pulls all the emails as long as the address does not appear in the custom table as mentioned above.
 
Also on the quarantine page i have a Toggle button to show hidden messages, in case they are looking for something in particular.
 
This proves to be the best option for a number of reasons:-
1. You want the Client to see that there are a large number of emails that you are stopping from getting to there network, otherwise what are they paying you for. It is bad enough that greylisting cuts out about 90% of spam so the users never get to see that. (Please read "Bad Enough" in the context that i meant it. There is no way i would ever run without it, i will happily live with the issue of explaining to my clients the positives.)
 
2. What you are requesting is that emails that match the autoBlackList be instantly dropped and not sent to the quarantine archive. So then getting them back seems to be a major issue.
 
 
Lastly
this thread was started on 15/10/09 and still being actively chased 1 month later. Why wouldnt you just get the GUI changed. Shouldnt take anymore than 8 hours work for a developer to add the feature.
 
Thats my two cents worth.
