Status Of Boxtrapper

I have 3 kids, each of which has an email address via a subdomain of my main domain. Currently, those addresses just forward to a verizon.yahoo.com email address so I can take advantage of their whitelist feature. But every frickin time I need to add an entry to the whitelist, it takes me an hour to figure out where they've hidden the admin ui for the feature. Maybe they want me to sign up for their $15/month Priority Tech Support feature.

 

I'd really rather do this at my own host anyway, so I was poking around about doing a whitelist via Cpanel, and in my searching I came across BoxTrapper in the Cpanel doc. Sounded like just the right thing for the kids accounts. But then when I logged onto my Cpanel, it was nowhere to be found. Searching the forums here shows why -- it was originally enabled, but disabled due to the load it placed on the server.

 

So I have two questions: since that was years ago, would you re-consider the decision? Servers are more powerful these days, and perhaps the software has improved in the intervening years. Second, if not, is there another good way of managing a whitelist for an email account via the Cpanel features available to us at TCH?

 

Thanks for your consideration,

Bruce- Thanks for the even more depressing info.

 

I confirmed with the help desk they have no plans to add BoxTrapper.

 

Fortunately, the email addresses they forward to are verizon ones; from there they apparently go to verizon.yahoo.com.

 

After 2 hours of looking, I can't find out how to change the whitelist settings for yahoo mail. Used to be verizon.ypc.yahoo.com but that's gone with no placeholder or nothin. Jerks.

 

Anyone have a good way, w/o BoxTrapper, of doing a whitelist for an email account via the Cpanel options available to us at TCH?
