Whitelisting the IP has always been a concern in ME. That's why I don't use the Mailenable whitelist feature in vs 3 (or earlier versions). I use MEFilter to handle the whitelisting because it avoids IP's. It uses the email address, which eliminates emails from the same IP that are unwanted to bypass the filter.

Your concern is valid. If the IP address gets whitelisted, then all email coming from that IP address will pass thru the filter. MEFilter eliminates this issue.

No it works on IP address not domain, so forgeries do not come into consideration as it is unlikely that the IP is forged. If someone is spamming you from an AOL server then yes it will get through but not from an AOL address necessarily. It is unlikely also that someone would be sending spam from the AOL servers although anything is possible. :wink:
