I'm already exchanging my whitelist with Jeff.

About some French providers  to be whitelisted :

yahoo.fr
google.fr
wanadoo.fr
free.fr
club-internet.fr
voila.fr
9telecom.fr
tiscali.fr
laposte.net
tele2.fr
noos.net
noos.fr
noos.net
numericable.net
nubericable.fr

Three others I added yesterday :

yeyey.com

123.com
all.bg
