From time to time, you may experience either a junk mailer or some other menacing individual whom keeps sending you annoying email messages. Our control panel has a built in feature, which allows you to block these email messages in a multitude of different ways. You can block them by:
- Message Header
- Message Body
Of course, if all you want to do is block one specific email address, then you don't have to worry about getting fancy with it - just enter the email address to be blocked, and that's it, done!
How to use the block email function:
1. Login to your control panel (http://www.your-domain.com/cpanel/)
If all you want to do is block a single email address, then simply leave
the "current default setting" as is, and enter in the email address to
be blocked. For example, firstname.lastname@example.org
Click "Add Filter", and that's it!
Doing so will allow you to become familiar with the ways that email
can be blocked, and will also help you with customizing a recipe that
works best for your domain. Play around with the settings, and try to
block words, or phrases based on the From Name, Subject, or Message Body
Text. Now, send an email to your account and see if the terms and criteria
you selected are providing the filtering you want.
Hint: Unless you're 100% sure of what a setting will
do, always delete it when you're finished, or until you have time to run
a series of tests on it. You want to ensure it's blocking what it's supposed
to, and not legitimate email messages!
If you're experiencing a high volume of junk mail, then there's a good possibility Spammers are taking advantage of your "catch all" option. To disable this, please see our tutorial on "Default Email Address."
