As Skip pointed out, whitelisting is easily within the capabilities  
of any mail client.  It is *not*, however, something that is easy to  
implement - there are a lot of design issues.  The FAQ has more  
details about this, if you are interested, including a link to  
comments from Mark (who did the Outlook plug-in) explaining the  
implementation difficulties.
