Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::VBounce - aid in rescuing genuine bounces

loadplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::VBounce [/path/to/]

The following options can be used in both site-wide ("") and user-specific ("user_prefs") configuration files to customize how SpamAssassin handles incoming email messages.

Previously whitelist_bounce_relays which will work interchangeably until 4.1.

This is used to 'rescue' legitimate bounce messages that were generated in response to mail you really *did* send. List the MTA relay hostnames that your outbound mail is delivered through. If a bounce message is found, and it contains one of these hostnames in a 'Received' header found the in the message body, it will not be marked as a blowback virus-bounce.

The hostnames can be file-glob-style patterns, so "relay*" will work. Specifically, "*" and "?" are allowed, but all other metacharacters are not. Regular expressions are not used for security reasons.

Multiple addresses per line, separated by spaces, is OK. Multiple "welcomelist_bounce_relays" lines are also OK.
