Loop Exception

The Loop Detection feature in Lyris keeps track of how many message From: one person have gone to each To: address, and sets a limit on the daily number. However, you might want to specify exceptions to this feature, which you can do using this "Loop Exception" field.

For example, if you have a script which generates many commands from the same email address each day, you can put an exception in for your script, and still retain tight control over breaking mail loops. To use this feature, specify either the to sender or the recipient address, or specify a sender/recipient email address combination by putting the "sender-recipient" together on a line, separated by a dash. You can specify as many exceptions as you like, each on a separate line.

For example, to put an exception for all mail from you would enter this:

to put an exception in for a local autoresponder named "" you would put in:

and if you wanted to put an exception in for only the messages from to a local autoresponder named "" you would put in:

Note: if a loop is detected, Lyris will send the server administrator an email notification of the loop. The email notification will contain the From and To information for that message, as well as the instructions for putting an exception for that loop, if so desired.
