Mailkeep Address Filters Gone?

The Address Filters page no longer exists on the Mailkeep Web GUI.

In the past, if I manually blacklisted (and had Mailtraq tarpit) an address, I could spare Mailkeep from the same fate by having it reject mail from the address before it ever got to Mailtraq. Now, if a blacklisted sender tries to mail via Mailkeep then Mailkeep will ask Mailtraq if it will accept the message, and Mailtraq will tarpit Mailkeep before responding, which is not the intention.

Will Address Filters return? If not, is there a way to spare Mailkeep from the blacklist tarpit or must I revert to simple "550" rejections rather than the more extreme "554" reserved for spammers and idiots?

My Mailkeep memory is weak so this may be off-traq... I stopped managing Sender Barring at Mailkeep quite early on, possibly with the introduction of "Mailbox Verification" (or similar). I suspect I wasn't hit by the tarpitting problem because Mailkeep's address was added to the local LAN.

Cheers,
Martin

I see that affecting banner delay, but don't see any reference to tarpitting being bypassed for LAN connections. Good news if it is. I do have Mailkeep's IPs in my LAN definition.

Sorry for the delay -- I'm largely back after an epic case of man-flu. ;)

Elric's comment in your Be Kind To Mailkeep suggests LAN immunity. I can't see any other whitelist (or blacklist exception) configuration option that might have avoided the problem here.
