Hi list,

I have below settings in amavisd.conf

$final_bad_header_destiny = D_DISCARD;

$bad_header_quarantine_to = 'bad-header-quarantine';

@whitelist_sender_maps = read_hash("$MYHOME/white.lst");

the above whitelist_sender_maps bypasses spam checks BASED ON senders.

how to bypass header_checks_maps based on senders?

Let's say I want to BYPASS header_checks for  all mails coming from

How can I achieve this?

not enough docs in internet regarding this subject.

the below lines are based on recipients .

@bypass_header_checks_maps = ( [qw( user at )] );

You can also use read_hash like this:

@bypass_header_checks_maps = (

Then insert your recipient email adresses in this file (line by line).


cat /etc/motd

Thank you
