How to most effectively block?

Beitragvon mulciber » 21. Feb 2014, 21:25

In an effort to try to block as much machine-generated spam as possible, I generally add senders to my blocked list first, then follow up by blocking the domain. It's a lot of work and I'm not sure how effective it is, in particular the "block sender" command. I find I'm still getting mail from "ch3ap_viagra@abbc.com" and "ch3ap_viagra@xyyz.com", though if I'd gotten either of those I'm sure I would have blocked both sides of the "@" separately. Thanks!

Hi mulciber!

Thank you for your interesting notice.

Could you give a screen shot of your blocked senders list? And, in code brackets, an example of such a mail?

Typically, it’s not so effective to collect spam senders – except of repeted senders.

Hi: Unfortunately I tried several ways to link to or attach a screen shot, and your system does not appear to permit it. Can you advise?

Thank you!

Thank you! I was hoping to send you a better example, but perhaps I am asking the question incorrectly.

I understand that spammers will generate endless numbers of new domains all the time, so that even if I block any of these domains, I am likely to get spam like this again.

However, as mentioned, I am also blocking the sender. So I was assuming that, as in this case, if I blocked only the domain of "3BureauMonitoring@roarone.com" I would still get mail from "3BureauMonitoring@roarrack.com". However, in each case like this I also took the time to block the sender.

So I am wondering why I continue to get spam from the sender "3BureauMonitoring@*"?

Does my question make sense? Thanks again.

PS: Unfortunately, your system would not seem to permit me to include a screen shot, so if you don't mind, please view it here:

I'm afraid that I was also not able to log in except as a guest. But I think you have gotten the idea. Thank you again, DGI

Thank you for your question. Surely it makes sense! And I fear, beyond that, it brings still new findings about Spamihilator's functionning to me. :)

If I guess right, because I can't see the spam-mails, it depends on your giving the blocked senders a similar name. I suppose, that the spam-senders use names different from the sender's address.

If I test it by myself with my sender address and with a wildcard as sender name, then it works. Like in the following screen-shot:

Another way could be to use the rule filter (a very mighty tool within Spamihilator):
