Enhanced spam filtering

Folks,

 

I do not know if GoDaddy personnel monitor this or not, but I am looking for a spam filtering option to either filter what appear to be nonsense domains (i.e. @cngdovfnnrwpfs.ctxsnw.bioclown.space) or even add DNS confirmation of senders.  Clearly @cngdovfnnrwpfs.ctxsnw.bioclown.space is not a legitimate sender.  And this is an increasingly common technique used by spammers.

 

I host Workspace email for several family members.  I waste a lot of time every day clearing out obvious spam and it appears to me that spam filtering is not getting much upgrade attention.  The simplest thing would clear 90%+ of the ones I see.  Like blocking email from any name with more than ten characters to the right of the @ symbol.  Or let the email recipient even define a rule where they can pick "Block email with how many characters to the right of the @ symbol?" and have it be a changeable number.  No legitimate business has a name with all the periods and other characters to the right of the @ symbol so this just seems like low-hanging fruit being ignored by whomever is supposed to be staying on top of the GoDaddy anti-spam efforts.

 

Any thoughts?

 

Thanks,

 

Phillip

In order to do this, you'd need to set up the spam rules for each inbox with Workspace. I use it myself and that's the only way I've ever found to stop that kind of stuff. I would suggest upgrading your email as Workspace itself is a little dated.

Re: Enhanced spam filtering

@MrVapor I appreciate the reply, but even when I look at the custom filter options I do not see any obvious way to say to block email from domains with more than "X" characters to the right of the @ symbol or that they must end with .com, .net or .org.  If you can give me a more specific pointer on how to do either, but preferably the first example, I would welcome it.

 

Thanks,
