suggestion: "Special" whitelist group in address book
 
Hi,

It would be useful to me to be able to add email addresses to a whitelist group such that they help with the whole spam thing, but addresses in this group do not show up as an available address when I want to send an email.

...it's would be a nice way to tuck-away addresses that you don't want to email, but you do want to receive from (maybe bank alert addresses or email list addresses etc).

What do others think?

cheers,
James.

Hi James,

this is quite similar to what I asked for back in July 2015:

That time, Rob held out the prospect of a very nice solution for that. Let's hope they didn't forget about this… ;)

Cheers,
Michael

Hi MIsc - sorry, I missed your post when searching whether this topic already existed (before opening this thread).

100% support this idea.

I have dozens (maybe hundreds) of email addresses that I whitelist via the normal address book. Definitely would be helpful to have this separated out in some way.

But in the absence of this I have for a long time now simply been adding a string of zzzzs in the nickname which I find useful to distinguish between normal email addresses and admin type email addresses.

No doubt that it would be a nice little feature, but it's not like you currently need multiple entries in your address book to do your whilelisting...do you? Can't you just have a single "Whitelist" entry with a whole bunch of email addresses in it?

In theory, this is what I do, but in practice I do so little whitelisting that I'm not sure I've really tested it well to see if it works the way I think it does.

...it's really only about not having those email addresses pop up when you are trying to send an email.

If you put a bunch of addresses under a contact called "whitetlist", they show as being from "whitelist" which isn't great.

...this happened to me this morning which prompted me to to lookup this thread and bump it.
