Lists can be imported from the following sources:
- Import from your email client address book: Select which email client application you are using, and press the Import button. Each address found in your address book is added to the ADB with Allow Email From status. Messages from any of the addresses imported are allowed to pass.
Note: If the Import button is not enabled, this means that your importing your email program’s address book is not yet supported. Comodo AntiSpam is diligently working to support all email program address books. Check to see if this update is available by pressing the Check For Updates button on the Main Configuration screen.
- Import from White list file or Black list file stored in your computer:
Black Lists: A black list is a list of known bad (Spammer) addresses. These addresses are imported with a Blocked control. It is generally NOT recommended to import Black Lists, as the Passcode Authentication algorithm will quarantine unknown senders until they pass the authentication process.
White Lists: A white list is a list of trusted email addresses. These addresses are imported with an Allowed control. Importing white lists provides a means to allow email messages from no-respond addresses. A no-respond address is an address, which sends you email but does not receive email, like a receipt for something you bought on the Internet.
