Accept or reject sender in the future

You can tell Spamfire to always accept or never accept mail from any particular sender.

Simply locate the message in the Mail Window. If you are trying to locate a message that Spamfire accepted as good, follow these steps. Then, select the message and choose one of the following commands from the Message menu:

  • Add Sender to Friends List — Spamfire will always accept mail from this sender.

  • Add domain to Friends List — Spamfire will always accept mail that comes from any address in this domain (the domain is the portion of the email address after the @ symbol).

  • Add mailing list to Friends List... — Spamfire will always accept mail from this mailing list. A window will appear where you can select what field should be matched. Many mailing lists require you to select the Reply-To or To field in order to match them.

  • Add Sender to Spammer List — Spamfire will never accept mail from this address.

  • Add Domain to Spammer List — Spamfire will never accept mail from this domain name.

  • Add Custom sender... — Spamfire will display a window where you can fine-tune the sender settings.

You can click or option click the Add Friend button in the Toolbar to perform many of these functions. You can review and edit the Senders List in the Sender Preferences.

All addresses and domains in the Senders List will appear in lower-case letters, regardless of their original case. This is done to ensure that your Friends get recognized, no matter how they type their addresses.

After you add a sender, you may want to rescue the message if it is good, or bounce and/or report it if it is spam.
