Mail Enable Standard Geo Blocking

Post by mailEnableStdUser » Sat Nov 19, 2022 11:59 pm

Hi,
Anyone know how to block some countries from trying to attempt to login into email addresses ?
For past few weeks I am seeing lot of failed attempts from OFAC sanction countries.
Blocking via Windows Firewall is painful as have to keep adding individual IP address.
Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks

digitron - thanks for your reply.
I saw that option during my research but it would be adding so many ip blocks for each of countries. My fear is this will slow down server. Hence was checking if something else is available on Mail Enable server side itself. There are extension for wordpress and plesk for geo blocking. If something similar exists for Mail Enable Standard server.

But definitely if there is no other option available, what you suggested is best possible solution till now.

Thanks Once again for your reply.
