The Enable Dynamic Always Permit list check box is enabled by default. This option is available in the Dynamic Always Permit List section. The following settings can be modified:

Enabling the Dynamic Always Permit List function allows some mail exchanged between a sender/recipient address pair to bypass anti-spam filtering. When mail between a sender to a recipient does not trigger an anti-spam filter a specified number of times, that sender/recipient address pair is added to the Dynamic Always Permit List.
After a sender/recipient address pair is added to the Dynamic Always Permit List, anti-spam filtering is not performed on mail between this sender/recipient address pair. When a specified timeout period has elapsed, the address pair is removed from the list.
