Any way to mark add an entire domain into the blocked senders?

By RexWorld ·
I am drowning in spam that originates from certain domains. I keep adding the individual email addresses into Outlook's blocked sender list but the spammers keep generating new email addresses in those domains.

So I'm wondering if there's a way in Outlook to add an entire domain to the blocked senders list?

What version of Outlook?

by rerasmussen In reply to Any way to mark add an en ...

I only have Office 2003 in front of me at the moment but I have always just added the domain to the list like spammer.com or instead of name@spammer.com. MS says you can also use @spammer.com.

In Outlook 2003 you get to the blocked senders list by using Tools / Options and there is a "Junk Email" button on the first Preference tab. When you click that button there is a tab for blocked senders.

Let me know what version of Outlook you have and I will check for the actual process on that version (I have most of them running somewhere. Unfortunately).

All junk mails from different domains

Hi. That was a pretty good idea. But, strange it might seem, out of the 60 junk mails that i received today, none had the same domain name.

All junk mails from different domains

But across a series of days or weeks we often get spammed with the sender as a different names (usually randomized) but from the same spammer domain. Getting rid of @xyzleads4sale.com keeps the future ones off your doorstep. Trouble is this trick won't stop spammers who create a fresh domain name for each new spam-campaign. For this you need a filter-tool to let you approve an unknown sender before their email is accepted by you, or else it gets bounced!
