How to Blacklist Weird Emails

Tue Nov 26, 2019 6:12 am

Hi Everyone,
Can someone help me...Please
I get about 40 or 50 Emails a day that can not be blacklisted..
I try to use wild card but to no avail...
It would be a waste of time with learning features...

So an email below is just one example... Any Help would be great

One option would be to create a custom filter that looks at the FROM for an email that is correctly formatted.

This is the one I have currently
FROM field, DOESN'T CONTAIN, REGEX

Code: Select all

[a-z0-9._%+-]+@[a-z0-9.-]+\.[a-z]{2,4}
Once you are happy with performance and are sure it's not going to tag legitimate emails you received, you could then look at setting the auto-delete option for that specific filter, and not see those emails any more.

Hi,

This morning when I woke up...I found that your command line worked pretty good...I would say very good...
But here is one that keeps getting thru.....
I got about 20 different ones that got thru any suggestions on this type of email.....

Odd. It should match those.

What stands out though is those asterisks, so I wonder if a nice and simple.
If FROM field, CONTAINS, PLAIN TEXT,

Code: Select all

 (*
No need for any fancy regular expressions, just looking for the opening bracket followed by an asterisk.
