Subject [jira] Commented: (JAMES-528) Add whitelist support
Date Mon, 12 Jun 2006 06:54:30 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-528?page=comments#action_12415823 ] 

Vincenzo Gianferrari Pini commented on JAMES-528:
-------------------------------------------------

The difference between the existing matchers like SenderIsLocal or SenderIsRegex and the new
IsInWhiteList matcher consists in the fact that the latter is not "static" (list hardcoded
in config.xml) but "dynamic" (list stored in a database), "personal" (per local sender) and
optionally grows automatically. The mailet that manages the list in the database is WhiteListManager.

The following (that can be found both in javadoc and in config.xml) should explain more:

         <!-- Whitelist Management -->
         <!-- Manages for each local user a "white list" of remote addresses whose messages
-->
         <!-- should never be blocked as spam. -->
         <!-- -->
         <!-- If <automaticInsert> is true, it will check, for a local sender, if
a remote recipient -->
         <!-- is already in the list: if not, it will be automatically inserted. -->
         <!-- This is under the interpretation that if a local sender X sends a message
to a -->
         <!-- remote recipient Y, then later on if a message is sent by Y to X it should
be -->
         <!-- considered always valid and never blocked; hence Y should be in the white
list -->
         <!-- of X. -->
         <!-- -->
         <!-- Another mode of operations is when a local sender sends a message to <whitelistManagerAddress>
-->
         <!-- with one of three specific values in the subject, to -->
         <!-- (i) send back a message displaying a list of the addresses in his own list
(<displayFlag>); -->
         <!-- (ii) insert some new addresses in his own list (<insertFlag>); -->
         <!-- (iii) remove some addresses from his own list (<removeFlag>). -->
         <!-- In all of the three above cases the message will be ghosted and the postmaster
will reply -->
         <!-- to the sender. -->
         <!-- -->
         <!-- The sender name is always converted to its primary name (handling aliases).
-->
         <!--
         <mailet match="SMTPAuthSuccessful" class="WhiteListManager" onMailetException="ignore">
            <repositoryPath>db://maildb</repositoryPath>
            <automaticInsert>true</automaticInsert>
            <whitelistManagerAddress>whitelist.manager@xxx.yyy</whitelistManagerAddress>
            <displayFlag>display</displayFlag>
            <insertFlag>insert</insertFlag>
            <removeFlag>remove</removeFlag>
         </mailet>
         -->
