    I manually kill tasks only when my phone goes stupid. So I don't bother with exclusion lists....

    As for not receiving them - I used t kill Messaging all the time and still got my SMS....

    This is my list:
    Messaging
    Advanced Task Killer
    Voice Dialer
    Alarm
    Handcent
    Settings
    Email
    Google Voice
    Gmail

    You dont really need a task killer though. As a matter of fact, I try to only use it once a day, at the end of the day.

    I have deleted the stock Messenger app altogether, because I use Handcent. Still get texts.

    My Ignore List consists of: SetCPU, Startup Auditor, and Handcent SMS.

    I would like to note that I only use ATK momentarily. Meaning, I open ATK, I kill the tasks (including itself), and that's it. I leave Sweeter Home unchecked so it ignores it each time I kill everything else. Though I don't put SH in the Ignore List because there have been times when I want to kill it just to refresh it ... make sense? It's UNchecked status is remembered by ATK, even after a reboot.
