Is there a way of submitting information about legitimate mailing lists so that they can be added to the server whitelists on everyone's DCC servers? The latest issue of Bruce Schneier's Crypto-Gram had an article about spam filtering that triggered a couple of rules in my version of SpamAssassin, but not enough to get it labeled as spam. What sent my filter over the edge was the fact that the message had been reported to DCC. It appears to me that people have misconfigured spam filters that triggered on the few spam phrases in this issue of the newsletter and automatically reported it to DCC with no manual verification. I could whitelist the mailing list at my end, but that doesn't solve the underlying problem. Is there provision for utilizing the supposedly greater degree of reliability of people who run the servers by having them agree on whitelist entries to compensate for misconfigured clients?
