MailProxy SMTP whitelist not working?

Pavel Hruška

May 1, 2018
I do have sender now that is being blocked by RBL even though I have whitelisted it in "Configuration -> Mail Proxy -> Whitelist". As I've read the docs for this option: All SMTP checks are disabled for those entries (e. g. Greylisting, SPF, RBL, …).

But still I am not able to make exception for this sender to get it pass this RBL block. Am I doing anything wrong?


I've been using this feature in previous version (5.x) and it worked as expected...

Should I fill a bug record somewhere?

to whitelist RBL checks you have to enter the ip address, not an e-mail.

in the postscreen check (which uses the rbl lists), does not have access to any information but the sender ip and helo domain so it is not possible

Okay, I am going to open bug to correct the docs (at least), because it is unclear that whitelisting by email does not work for RBL (because of postfix/postrcreen design).
