SMTP Blocking vs Trusted Senders precedence
Question asked by Camilo Torres - January 4, 2017 at 5:56 AM
Hi, is there any information that will explain what is the precedence in which the SMTP Blocking and the Trusted Senders checks are performed?
I want to block the ".us" domains on SMTP Blocking, **EXCEPT** for one ".us" domain, but i'm not sure if the SMTP Block will occur first even if the exception is created in the Trusted Sender.

I would also like to know the answer to this. There are older posts about older versions that explain this to be the case, but in my own testing it appears the SMTP blocking of a domain happens first before the trusted senders list is checked.
We are on the newest version of SM. *.US domains have been particularly bad of late in regards to spam - it would be nice to be able to lock that down with exceptions.
