This shows how to disable anti-spam checking of all emails coming from an IP address -- in other words whitelist an IP address instead of conventional domain name whitelisting.

Everything here is done as the zimbra user. Let's say you want to whitelist all the emails coming from


Enter following line at the top of: /opt/zimbra/conf/postfix_recipient_restrictions.cf

check_client_access hash:/opt/zimbra/postfix/conf/amavis_client_whitelist


Create a file: /opt/zimbra/postfix/conf/amavis_client_whitelist

vi /opt/zimbra/postfix/conf/amavis_client_whitelist FILTER smtp-amavis:[]:10026

Converting amavis_client_whitelist an ASCII form file into maptype database file:

/opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postmap /opt/zimbra/postfix/conf/amavis_client_whitelist

oh noes:

zimbra@zimbra:~$ /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postmap /opt/zimbra/postfix/conf/amavis_client_whitelist
Segmentation fault

but ...:

zimbra@zimbra:~$ file /opt/zimbra/postfix/conf/amavis_client_whitelist.db
/opt/zimbra/postfix/conf/amavis_client_whitelist.db: Berkeley DB (Hash, version 8, native byte-order)


Enter following in /opt/zimbra/conf/amavisd.conf.in:

NOTE: Make sure you use the amavisd.conf.in and NOT amavisd.conf

 $inet_socket_port = [10024, 10026];                     # change from original setting
 $interface_policy{'10026'} = 'CLIENTWHITELIST';              
 $policy_bank{'CLIENTWHITELIST'} = {                          
   bypass_spam_checks_maps   => [1],                          
   final_spam_destiny   => D_PASS,                      

Restart postfix and amavisd
