Uploading whitelist and blacklist exceptions in bulk
You can upload whitelist and blacklist exception information in bulk if you have the blacklist or whitelist exceptions for all of your users and groups in a single file.
The file must be in comma-separated value (CSV) format, and the header of the file must be this string exactly: "Apply To, Address, Description". Every line must contain 3 fields separated by commas:
*
*
*
The fields can be quoted or not. If a field contains a comma, it must be quoted. If 1 field is quoted, the rest of the line must be quoted. If a field contains a quotation mark, this character must be surrounded by additional quotation marks. If a line contains more than 3 fields, the file is rejected and an error message is displayed.
For example:
Apply To, Address, Description
"UK Sales", "address1@domain1.com", "Description of address1, containing comma"
john@example.com, address1@domain1.com, Description of address1 without comma
"example.com", "domain2.com", "Description of domain2"
"Marketing", "address2@domain1.com", "description of address2", "this field is not processed"
To upload the file:
1.
*
To upload a bulk whitelist, click the link Upload addresses from a CSV file under Whitelist Bulk Operations.
*
To upload a bulk blacklist, click the link Upload addresses from a CSV file under Blacklist Bulk Operations.

Click Upload. Note that large files take a while to transfer to the server. If the file is empty, too large, or cannot be opened, an error results. An error also results if any of the elements are invalid.
You can also download the current blacklist and whitelist into a CSV file for viewing and editing in a spreadsheet.
Note that if no exceptions are created, the default spam policy will apply.
