I’ve been using “Train as Spam” in an attempt to block messages from a shady political group.
My Blocklist has a “From (address) Is Equal to firstname.lastname@example.org” rule, but it’s not working.
When I checked my Whitelist, I found dozens of rules that include "@shadydomain.org" addresses. So I deleted all of those rules.
To test this change, I selected one of the shadydomain.org messages in my Inbox and did an “Apply Inbox Rules.” Instead of sending this message to my Spam folder, this resulted in three new Whitelist rules:
- List-Unsubscribe Is Equal to <http://go.shadydomain.org/unsubscribe?email=…>
- From (address) Is Equal to email@example.com
- From (name) Is Equal to Instant Poll (via shadydomain.org)
Why are Whitelist rules automatically added for a blocked email address?
