Jeff, Eric,

if I want to manually whitelist these, how should I do?

Do I have to add both the wildcard and non-wildcard version of a
domain to have the domain and all its subdomains whitelisted?

That is, will
whitelist_spamcop_uri   *.yahoo.com
also whitelist yahoo.com or do I have to explicitly add
whitelist_spamcop_uri   yahoo.com
(since yahoo.com wouln't "match" *.yahoo.com 'cause it's missing the dot)?
