Whitelist

A whitelist is like a VIP list; it is a list of items that have explicit access to a resource and/or granted special privileges.  The opposite of a whitelist is a blacklist which is a list of items that are denied access to a resource.

In the context of emails, a whitelist is a list of email addresses and domains that are regarded as safe. Emails received from this list are exempt from spam filtering rules.
