I figure this question has probably been asked before but couldn't find it. 

I have one local email address that wants an email from one particular blacklisted address.  Is there a way to do this so he is still filtered from all the rest and everyone else is still filtered from this spam.

Lance,

In the Settings tab, then Black / White Lists tab, right hand side, White Lists section, Excluded FROM Emails tab. Create a file by entering a filename in the file edit box, and then either simply type it in the edit box underneath, or edit the textfile itself, to add the blacklisted "from" email address in it.

How do I keep everyone else from getting the spam except the one person.

I dont want to completely exclude this one spammer from the filtering actions

If this one sender is indeed a spammer and others don't want to receive email from him, then the only solution is to have your particular recipient, the one who does want to receive email from the spammer, be placed in the list of local addresses that will receive unfiltered email. All emails addressed to him will not be filtered.

There is no middle solution here. If the sender is a spammer, he is either blocked to send email to anyone, or he's placed in a whitelist and allowed to send email to everyone. It's a strange situation where a particular person spams all users of a domain, but une person in that domain wants to receive email from him...
