What is a Whitelist?

The Whitelist in reference to online terminology, is a generic name for a bunch of e-mail addresses or IP addresses that happen to be deemed SPAM free.


Whitelists run typically with e-mail applications to let users bring together a databases of senders they intend to acquire e-mail information from. This catalog overrides any blacklists or spam filter, and also lets these emails be delivered to the users inbox instead of being filtered out as SPAM.
