Well that's too bad and a hard lesson learned.  I lost quite a bit of  
email, that I'll need to restore.  Is this change documented somewhere  
so I can reference it to others, as I definitely didn't know about it  
beforehand?  If not, I'll keep this email for a time?

Any objections to opening a bug asking for the whitlelist and  
blacklist to honor domain names again?

Thanks for responding,
