ME020264 - HOWTO: How to block specific domains


How to block specific domains.


MailEnable can block a domain from sending to a specified domain. This is done through the Domain > Properties window, accessible through the MailEnable Administration Program. When viewing domain properties, click the Blacklist tab and enter the domains to block. It is not possible to block specified domains for the whole server.

The domain blocking works on the envelope information, which may not match the contents of the email. This envelope information can be seen in the SMTP logs.

As spammers can change the contents and envelope information, this is not a reliable means of reducing spam. Using the Access Control option in the SMTP options can specify an IP address, which is more reliable. Review the SMTP Activity or W3C logs to find the IP address of the connection.
