What you can also do

NoSpamProxy rates an email as trustworthy if the domain bonus is at least 40 points. The prerequisite for this is that the conditions mentioned at Creating an allowlist are fulfilled. If you want to ensure that emails from a specific partner are delivered, set the trust value fixed to 40 or higher. See Editing partner domains.
