    Hi,

    Since the release of the many domain extensions and the general low price, I have been seeing a LOT of spam coming in from these domains.

    With "account level filtering" is it possible to block just the extension OR better yet whitelist .com, .net, .org so it will reject all others?

    Thanks-
    Jim

    Thank you, that covers blocking but since the list of these new domain extensions is so massive it would be impossible to block them all. Well very lengthy anyhow.

    With that filter is there a way to block "everything except" .com, .net, .org, .info?

    I might have to change this later and might add long standing ones like .io but for the most part I really don't see a flood of legitimate customers to these alternate extensions that have popped up seemingly out of nowhere.

    Is it possible to do as Data1 asked and block everything but .com/.net/.org through account level filtering?
