Let me rephrase my question.  Can I add multiple domains or FQDNs to the whitelist?  I know how to add just one through the GUI and that's all that it will allow to my knowledge.

Nope, not working for me.  I drill down to:

--> Mail Policies

--> HAT Overview


After I click WHITELIST, I get the option to add a sender.

"Enter the hosts to add. CIDR addresses such as are allowed. IP address ranges such as are allowed. IP subnets such as 10.2.3. are allowed. Hostnames such as crm.example.com are allowed. Partial hostnames such as .example.com are allowed."

If I try to add more than one domain, i.e., microsoft.com, cisco.com or microsoft.com cisco.com, I get this error:

A sender can be:
  • an IP address
  • a CIDR address such as
  • an IP ranges such as or 10.1.1-5.
  • an IP subnet such as 10.2.3.
  • a hostname such as crm.example.com
  • a partial hostname such as .example.com

What am I doing wrong?

I can ADD ONE.  I was asking if there is a way to add multiple.  I have over a hundred domains from our customer list that I want to whitelist and adding them each individually is tedious.  I wish Cisco would have added this as an option to the Blocker.

Hi there,

I can think of a couple of possibilities. The first would be to export the HAT and take a look at it in a text editor. It may be obvious how to add multiple entries. I've never done this, though, so it may not be clear.

Blocker does have a CLI. I believe this command would do what you're looking for in batch:

listenerconfig edit IncomingMail hostaccess edit sendergroup ACCEPT blahblahblah.com Policy: “TRUSTED”

You can also use listenerconfig by itself for menu-driven CLI.

Let me know if that works.
