    I'd like to block a range of ip addresses starting with 31.204.159.0 to avoid additional spam using the Global Email Filters. What's the recommended settings for creating a filter?

    Thanks Dan. I had already checked out those threads. I don't have admin permissions as I'm on a shared hosting account. CIDR ranges didn't work with the Global Email Filters, only IP Blocker. However, I've been in touch with their tech support and trying this method:

    Rules
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    Any Header > contains
    IP address with last three digits and decimal point removed
