Customer specific submissions not accepted with empty "Blocked" list

Submissions for customer specific spam rules are not being accepted for all users even though the Submitter's List in the Control Center Spam - Submission Settings - Submitter's List is set to the default "Blocked" configuration with an empty block list.

This configuration should allow submissions from all email addresses but looking up the submission in Status - Submission Detail shows that the Submitter Type is "Blocked" and the Invalid Reason is "The submitter was a blocked user".

Submission type  Missed spam
Submitter type  Blocked
Valid  No
Invalid reason:  The submitter was a blocked user
Message hisory  [Error 264] Submission invalid: submitter is not in the submitter allowed list


This issue is currently under investigation.


Add an unused email address to the Spam - Submission Settings - Submitter's List - Submitter Addresses list to force SMG to synchronize the local submitter configuration with the submitter configuration stored in the Symantec operations center.
