Hello, David.

Keeping in mind that Roundcube is really just a web based email client, 
whitelisting or blacklisting domains is a task that is handled by the 
underlying MTA (mail transport agent), such as Sendmail, Postfix, Exim.

Having said this, there are a great many plugins and addons available 
for Roundcube that would give an administrator and user the ability to 
manipulate some of that functionality. You may want to look into 
installing and configuring the managesieve plugin, if you're running 
your own server at Startlogic, which would also require 
installing/configuring Sieve at the OS level.

If you are utilizing a managed service, you'll undoubtedly need to 
contact Startlogic's support to determine whether or not they've got the 
Sieve functionality installed and configured within their environment.
