My routine for handling this after releasing one from quarantine is to wildcard the sender in the AutoWhiteListForceDelivery.txt file. I open the file, do a find (CTRL+F), search term is prvs and then I wildcard the address up to the username.

This  prvs=59176D4360=username@domainname.com|user@ourcompany.com
Becomes this *username@domainname.com|user@ourcompany.com

Jeff,

SpamFilter does not look at the "From:" header when handling sender's addresses, as this is just a header, not the real sender's address. SpamFilter instead acts upon the address specified in the "RCPT TO" SMTP command. This address is recorded in the "X-SF-RX-Return-Path" header that is added to the email by SpamFilter, and which will usually also match the email address specified in the "Return-Path" header.

When examining the sender's address in order to whitelist them, you will need to look at this "RCPT TO" address, not the one in the "From:" header.

We have a company that seems to be using a form of Bounce Address Tag Validation that keeps getting blocked.  I have tried adding the domain to the white list but the emails are continuing to be blocked?  The From fields is in the form of
prvs=59176D4360=username@domainname.com with the prvs=###= changing each time.
Is there anything else I can try to prevent the emails from getting blocked?
