What is the recommended format for a domain to allow it through? I assume one puts it in the Whitelist Excluded Domains/IPs area.

If we want all email from archub.org and tintin.archub.org to be allowed through, do we make an entry

*@archub.org and

*@tintin.archub.org

or is the entry

*.archub.org

or is it

archub.org

and the 2nd entry is

tintin.archub.org

John,

You are correct in placing them inthe Whitelist Exlcuded Domains.

As far as the format, there's a few options.

1) Entering the following:
archub.org
tintin.atchub.org

whitelists only email from these two domains


2) Entering the following:
*archub.org

whitelists any domain that ends in archub.org, ex. tintin.archub.org, or dandan.archub.org, or even abcdefgarchub.org


3) Entering the following:
archub.org
*.archub.org

whitelists the domain archub.org, along with any other child domains in the form something.archub.org

In no case should you have the "@" sign in the domain, since that is part of an email address, not a domain name.
