Today's release includes the long-awaited Positive Whitelisting feature.

With this feature you'll never again have messages from known senders that get marked as spam and sent to the Known Spam or Suspect Email folders. When enabled, any email from a sender that is in your Address Book will always be delivered to the Inbox. Just go to your spamBlocker Settings page to turn the feature on or off as shown below.


We've also added a setting there to automatically add a known sender to your Address Book if you find a message from them in your Known Spam folder.


To edit your spamBlocker settings click on the Edit link beside "spamBlocker" on the left side of any Web Mail page, then select the Settings tab.

Hi Email Guy,

It appears that the current version is 6.3.10. Was there nothing in that release that you wanted to tell us about?

It was primarily maintenance and fixing a few uncommon bugs that most users don't see anyway. We also made a change to give improved performance for reading mailboxes with lots of stored email and many messages in them. But no new features.

I don't maintain an Address Book and never have done so for my personal email at home. This is probably because the one on Netscape 2.0, my firstever email program 16 years ago, didn't work properly. What I have wanted is something like a reverse spam blocker list, where I can put an email address from which I always want to receive emails, but I don't want to go to the trouble of setting up an Address Book. Is this ever going to be possible?

They are the same list in Web Mail, and entering the email addresses in the Address Book isn't really any more steps than entering them in a whitelist. Just go to Address Book, click Add Contact, type or paste one email address in, click Save, enter the next one. You don't have to fill out any other fields.
