For Bulk mail or graymail you can use the tag Bulk mail and send it for the users.

Seems to be C - from available actions: "For the SMTP-proxy, you can configure the Firebox to take the following actions when spamBlocker determines that an email message is spam: Deny — Stops the spam email message from being delivered to the email server, and sends SMTP error 571 Delivery not authorized, message refused to the email server that sent the email message. Add subject tag — Allows the spam email message to go to the mail server but adds text to the subject line to identify the email message as spam or possible spam. Allow — Allows the spam email message to go through the Firebox without a subject tag. Drop — Drops the connection immediately. Unlike the Deny action, the Firebox does not send an SMTP error message to the server that sent the email. If the Firebox does not send an error, the server that sent the email will detect this as a timeout and will likely try to resend the message at least once. Quarantine — Sends the spam email message to a Quarantine Server. If you use spamBlocker with the POP3 or IMAP-proxy, you have only two actions to choose from: Add Subject Tag and Allow. You cannot use the Quarantine Server with the POP3 or IMAP-proxy."

Agreed, answer should be C in my opinion. Adding an exception would only block a single user domain. The question is not clear on whether it is the same company, but we would assume that the email newsletter could be from different addresses. Then again, the key word here is "the newsletter" singular, so it is somewhat of a trick question.

I agreed with solution Answer is C. Question ask how to make sure my user'll get newsletters. If we choose A. What's going on if company change sender email or if new company send newsletters to users. If we trust spamblocker can classify type of email C. is good choice so we added tag for user can make filter rules for separate newsletters email.
