How to block spamers
Anonim
Enthusiast

Please repspond with posts only (email address is not monitored).

There are 4 questions

1. What is the URL for the official, definative guide for Email Settings Blocking - blocked senders list

2. Is there a way to block sub-domains?
     Example: I block jetsetter.com but spammers use random_name@RANDOM_SUBD.justsetter.com

3. How can I upload a list of know spaming domins?

     I have over 2,000 

4. Where can I report specific spamming domains?

     spam@verizon.net appears unmonitored

     spamdetector.notcaught@verizon.net appears unmonitored

     spamdetector.update@verizon.net  appears unmonitored

More generally, I'm join a community committed to blocking (or materailly reducing spam).

You are talking to peers here so follow is just my understanding of things.

All the settings are off the Webmail site one of which addresses is http://webmail.verizon.net

The specific page that comes up for me TODAY is

https://mail.verizon.com/webmail/driver?nimlet=showmessages&view=emails#options_Email_Options

2.  You can write a FILTER rule to try and match a subdomain

3.  Probably no way to upload that many.  The filter rules are limited to about 50

4.  The spamdetctor.notcaught  is the correct address to report spam.  Its is monitored, but they are not usually adding rules on reports by domains.  Its a third party Verizon uses and its looking for some way to detect spam mostly by other means.  Do not send spam to spamdetector.update as its for the exact other purpose, i.e reporting email that is not spam but was caught by the spamdector by mistake.

Thank you for your reply. The Verizon blocking feature does not work in the real world in my experience. It appears to be just another empty marketing promise. 

Does anyone have any third party email service recommendtions?

Gmail has some pretty amazing spam filtering.

Try a third party email platform (ie Mozilla Thunderbird) and use a spam plugin (I use spamfighter) and problem, if not solved (it does block domains fairly well) - will be drastically reduced, is workable.

Hope that this helps... it has for me. For I have given up on fighting Verizon and its spam blocking/filtering.
