Grey Listed Friend

Postby hamasaki Fri Apr 22, 2011 7:02 pm

I`ve been getting emails from a company even though they`ve told me I`ve been removed from their mailing list, so I decided to block them instead.

I`ve added their full email to the email black list, but the emails still keep coming through. The MWES header info states the emails are from a 'Grey Listed Friend'. What is that exactly? I don`t have their IP or email listed on any whitelists and I don`t see any settings for Grey Listed Friends.

Thank you.

Sorry, this only notififed me as a new post now. Weird.

A greylisted friend is someone who's been let through the greylist before, so the next time they encounter the greylist, they are let through automatically let through instead of being greylisted again.

Can you post the headers here?
