- How do I add an email address to my "bad senders" or "good senders" list with Spam Quarantine?
- What options are available (e.g., wildcards)?
- MIT IS&T uses a spam filter to protect MIT email: http://ist.mit.edu/spam
- First, log into the MIT Spam Quarantine site:
- To mark a sender as bad, click the "Bad Senders" link from the left-hand side.
- Put the sender's email address into the box under "Add Bad Senders"
- Press "Add"
- To mark a sender as good, click the "Good Senders" link from the left-hand side.
- Put the sender's email address into the box under "Add Good Senders"
- Press "Add"
You can also manage your Bad Senders or Good Senders list:
Delete: Delete the selected email addresses or domain names from your bad senders or good senders lists.
Enable: Enable the selected email addresses or domain names in your bad senders or good senders lists.
Disable: Disable the selected email addresses or domain names in your bad senders or good senders lists.
The most effective way to filter bad senders is to add the address that is in the Return-Path header, this might not match the From header. See this KB page on how to view full email headers
Specifying a domain matches all senders from that domain. For example, if you specify the domain example.com, the following senders would match: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, and email@example.com.
You can use the * and ? characters to match multiple senders. Use ? to represent any one character. For example, firstname.lastname@example.org will match email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. Use * to represent zero or more characters. For example, email@example.com will match firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, and firstname.lastname@example.org.
Email addresses and domain names are not case sensitive, meaning that it doesn't matter if you type a blocked or allowed sender using upper case, lower case, or a mix of both.
Please note: you are limited to a total of 200 entries in your combined Good Senders and Bad Senders lists.
