Subject: Path Sequence for incoming email message

Is there a flowchart somewhere that shows in what sequence the server uses
to determine the legitimacy of an incoming email message?  The multiple
modules are:

Network - Denied IP Addresses
Network - Blacklisted IP Address
Network - RBL Servers
Network - WhiteHole IP List
Network - Whitelist by DNS
Mail - Rules
Mail - RFC
SMTP - Receiving

The reason I ask is I added a domain to the Network - Whitelist by DNS
area but a Mail - Rules rule blocked it.  Is it possible to whitelist an
SPF failed domain?
