Anyways back to whitelists, you might be able to get hold of one from AHBL (Abusive Hosts Blocking Lists) see here http://www.spambouncer.org/reference/...

I got this from wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whitelist):
"Commercial whitelists are a system by which an internet service provider allows someone to bypass spam filters when sending e-mail messages to its subscribers, in return for a small pre-paid fee (typically a fraction of a cent) per message sent. A sender can then be sure that his messages have reached their recipients without being blocked, or having links or images stripped out of them, by spam filters. The purpose of commercial whitelists is to allow companies to reliably reach their customers by e-mail.
Commercial providers include Sender Score Systems (formerly Bonded Mail), SuretyMail (formerly ISIPP IADB), and GoodMailSystems's CertifiedEmail(tm) product. Goodmail made headlines in February 2006 when America Online and Yahoo announced plans to implement it. AOL has stated that mail from senders who have prepaid 1/4 cent per message (AOL has announced free programs with SuretyMail and Habeas for non-profits) will be delivered directly to users' mailboxes without being subject to spam filters. The messages will be clearly identified to the user as having come from a trusted source. These senders must pass a system of accreditation with Goodmail, and their messages must only be sent to people who have a pre-existing business relationship with the sender. If a sender sends a message to a user who has not previously agreed to receive it, AOL may entirely block the sender.
Free e-mail on AOL's service will continue to work as it always has, and a user will continue to receive all messages from a sender whom he has whitelisted. AOL subscribers will not be charged for sending or receiving e-mail, and senders who do not prepay AOL will have their messages subject to the same spam filters as before."
And also Habeas (mentioned in the above AHBL link) seems to be a good service. They monitor ones reputation and reports if you get on one of the blacklists.
I found a free reputation lookup service as well: http://www.senderbase.org/home/rep_lo...
Not sure how good it is, the ones I looked up showed neutral all of them.
