Note : The above link needs to be monitored for any new IP ranges added by Salesforce.


Wildcard characters cannot be used to designate approved senders for Sender IP Addresses or Sender Email Addresses, but you can specify your IP address ranges with CIDR notation. Also, the wildcard (*) character is allowed for trusted third party subdomains. For example, messages from test.sample.com are accepted if *.sample.com is added in Approved Senders > Sender Domains. Use caution when adding any information to a whitelist.

In a scenario where you do not wish to whitelist the entire Salesforce IP range, the following entry can be added to allow the mail through:

*.bnc.salesforce.com or *.salesforce.com
