Another dumb question..! :)

If,under Mailbox configuration, I select 'None' for filtering, is any filtering still occurring? Any that is not under user control?

I ask because I just seem to have tremendously less spam on a domain I recently relocated... and, well, I'm excited but a little concerned :).

Yes - our MX servers will reject any connections from IPs that are listed on the b.barracudacentral.org blacklist, so mail from those IPs will never be delivered. That behavior cannot be disabled.

Thanks Sean!

That makes sense. I'm not savvy enough anymore to speak authoritatively, but from what I seem to see on the web Barracuda's RBL's work pretty good. (As in, not many false positives). So, that's groovy.

Just from a documentation standpoint -- I don't think I saw any mention of an RBL on the email documentation. I realize you all may change RBL partners now and then, but this might be worth noting in the documentation.

Thanks! :)
