Okay,  So a IADB whitelist test for...
 
>> anntaylor.outbound.ed10.com

...would work along the lines:

| anntaylor.outbound.ed10.com.iddb.isipp.com = 64.14.86.219
| 219.86.14.64.iadb2.isipp.com = 127.0.0.40

Where 40 means 10 "listed" + 3 * 10 "other reasons" resp.
10 "listed" + 20 "important reason" + 10 "other reason".

It's probably better to use the detailed codes offered by
iadb.isipp.com, but I check this stuff with GetHostByAddr(),
and then the single iadb2 code is good enough.

In theory you could use this method to catch some dubious
submissions.  It's not exactly a whitelist, a spammer is
free to buy an IADB entry ($ 500 + a monthly fee) as long
as he follows the IADB definition of "legit".  I'm certain
that it's neither your nor my definition... <gd&r>

                       Bye, Fank
