Hi ITJONNY,

 

You may be able to adjust your settings for higher spam protection or set custom filters for emails to be routed to your spam folder.

 

 To create custom message filters, in example a rule could be created that all .CN (as example) goes to spam folder,  please use the following help guide:

Surely it should be possible to block an entire TLD by allowing the Workspace user to add

 

*.es

or

*.org

or

*.com.br

etc.

as a block setting?

I don't understand why this topic is marked solved.  It is not.

The resolution provided does not answer the original question or the ask for functionality.

There is a need to be able to block all emails from a TLD.  Even if this uses wildcards such as *@*.tld

The new TLD's are a major source of spam and there are no tools here to stop them.

I will never need to get emails from email@spam.press or info@petellic.pw

I want to be able to block these entire TLD's

 

This is desperately needed! It seems like a simple thing to implement.

This solution does help with the spam from other countries however it would still be great if we could simply block all top level domains we no longer want to receive any email from.

 

The issue I can see with this solution is its not actually blocking the domain but the letters. So if I block any email with “.ru” in the from field it will block all email from the top level domain but also anyone with .ru in their email address such as an email like “Jones.Russel@Domain.com” so you can see that a feature to block the domain at the top level is still the better solution.
