That's a pretty cavalier response to a legitimate university business process. A rationally developed university policy worked out in consultation with the stakeholders would probably be a better approach.

We have various units using various outsource bulk email companies sending email to University staff, faculty, and students and inevitably it is block by our spam filters.  Whitelisting has become an all too common approach to solving this issue.  The problem is our whitelist entries at Postini never get removed.  We have asked the campaign managers if we can insert specific header records in messages, as this is the preferred Postini method of whitelisting, however that is not possible in most cases.
