View Full Version : Can I block certain emails, but keep the catchall?

10-14-2003, 06:21 PM
I have four or five heavily spammed addresses that I don't want email from, BUT, I do want to keep my catchall email functionality. Is there any way I can not get emails sent to certain addresses but keep the catchall functionality?

Thanks for any and all help!

Check this thread http://forums.westhost.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=1033 Many are trying to find ways to get rid of the spam. Are you using SpamAssasin? If you know you do not want any mail form some of the addys you could start by makeing aliases for them and dumping them into one e-mail/ftp account that you create for it. Then you could just ssh or ftp in to your account every so often and dump the mail from that account. I may have some of the specifics wrong since I am saying this off the top of my head and as everyone knows may mind is like a seave. :)

Alternatively, you could just skip out the whole bounce message thing and send mail (that matches conditions you set) straight to trash. If you would like to do that, let me know and I'll whip up some code for you...
