White list - advantages

Post by abe »

Hi folks!

We got great feature -> Black List. But when you use it you have to be very carefull. If you add by accident e-mail address your friend you'll never get e-mails from this person. But Black List is necessary and is still useful. No doubt!

I'm thinking about improvement - White List. General it's list of your friends and confidential e-mail addresses.
First and most important White List has HIGHER priority than Black List - it means if I got e.g myfriend@domain.com address in both lists email will NOT be delete. And that's all :wink:

I got one more idea. How use White List - it would be great to have possibilities to give each address different colours. If I got e-mail form e.g. Jon Bon Jovi :) it shows on list in pink, if from my wife it would be.... orange ....

simple and powerful 8)

tell me what do you think about that.

greetings

I prefer a BLACK list to a WHITE list. I get lots of legitimate emails; it would take me ages to add all the senders of them to a white list. IMHO, a black list is much more convenient. You simply right-click on an email you don't want to see in your inbox again, then add it to your black list and you're done. Much easier than adding all legitimate addresses to a white list. Just my 2 cents.

Kind regards,
Buddel

I agree Black List is very useful and I would not remove it. I just would like to add White List. Together BL & WL will make Popman more powerful. That was my intention.

I agree. A black list AND and a white list may be quite useful. :)

Hi Christian,
I don´t want to push you - you´re doing an excellent job - I just want to underline the request of "abe" :!: . A Whitelist in connection with the newly integrated Rules-Feature would almost completely solve the spam-problem of a lot of users I think :D . By the way, the marking of the spam-mails isn´t quite satisfying now - the mail-index is getting hard to follow-up by all these dashes :( . Maybe it would be possible to fill the concerned lines with a somehow colored shading? More important would be to place a sortable sign or word somewhere in the line to allow sorting the good and the bad mails into blocks :idea: . Putting the word "SPAM" in the priority-coloumn seems to me a practical way.

p.s. . :idea: ..... corresponding to the Whitelist a positive rule-action would be desireable, e.g. subject contains <expression> -> ok ! This could be used by people who expect a lot of mails from unknown senders due to business-action. In their offers and/or advertisements they could specify a key-word to be placed in the subject line of the mail. By this way they could be sure to receive them :!: . Benno B.

White List would prevail over rules or not?

Hi folks,
because Christian seemingly hasn´t enough time to deal with this object - you should throw a glance at "www.poptray.org". There is a quite similar program named "poptray" with whitelist and other interesting features. Both programs "popman" and "poptray" seem to me to have the same origin - I think it´s a good alternative, at least until Christian got time to complete his program.

No, there is no built-in WhiteList available in PopMan 1.3 Beta 15, but there will be with Beta 16. When? Soon.
