Test Order and Priority

Whitelist and Blacklist Priority

Whitelists take precedence over any of the blacklists, i.e., once the email or recipient was whitelisted, the email or recipient will not be blacklisted by ORF. Exceptions to this rule can be configured in the ORF Administration Tool.

Optimizations

Some of these blacklist test above may not be performed in every case due to optimizations in the filtering engine (e.g., no keyword filtering is performed if the keyword filter expression list is empty).
