Description (partial)

** Currently the logic that SDR domain exception list uses is:
> To skip SDR check, by default, the domains in the Envelope From:, From:, and Reply-To: headers of the message must be the same and match the domains configured in the domain exception list. 
> To skip the SDR check based on the domain in the Envelope From: header only, we can enable the option of 'Match Domain Exception List based on domain in Envelope From:' under ESA GUI > Security Services > Domain Reputation.

** Some customers have valid senders that don't match either of the criteria mentioned above. And sometimes, domains other than the one present in 'Envelope From:' header come into the radar of SDR checks, even though they may be valid domains. Need the ability for ESA to skip SDR checks if the domain for any header (reverse DNS host:, helo:, env-from:, header_from:, reply_to:) matches a domain listed in the Domain Exception list.

SDR has been enabled and Domain exception list has been configured.
