Zhang,

Are you talking about Sender White-listing or Recipient White-listing in the following thread ?
http://www.iredmail.org/forum/post21835.html#p21835

http://policyd.sourceforge.net/readme.html
The url you sent says that :
    Please note that address whitelist will be matched only against
    the  sender address. For recipient  whitelisting,  please refer
    to the opt-in/opt-out section below.

In my case, I am the recipient (abc@mydomain.org). There is an email sender john@bank.com, which is getting rejected by my server because of greylist=new and john's server doesn't try again. But John is not a spammer. So I want to whitelist John.

So I think the solution is "Sender Whitelisting" in the above readme url.

Please clarify. Thanks.

Yes, greylisting opt-in/out.

If sender MTA doesn't try again, you'd better disable greylisting for this domain.

Yes, greylisting opt-in/out.

But as I understand from the url, the opt-in/out is for Recipient Whitelisting not for Sender Whitelisting.

Re: Whitelist

Oops, sorry about my mistake.
Greylisting opt-in/out is applicable to recipients. Which means, if you enable greylisting opt-in for user abc@your_domain.com, Policyd won't enable greylisting for all emails sent to abc@your_domain.com.

You need to whitelist this domain, bank.com (domain of your sender john@bank.com).
