Marc, you have yet to tell us about how these domains end up on the
whitelist. This seems to me to be the main issue with your idea. How
exactly does a domain qualify for the whitelisting? and how often is
it or should it be checked? Or what makes it be removed from the list?

To me your idea sounds like "if the mail server and DNS is configured
correctly, and the domain is on , we're 99% certain it
doesn't send any spam".=20

In spamassassin terms, how many points is that worth? +50 ? +10 ? +2 ?=



I still think a manually verified list of whitelist_from_rcvd would do
far better.
