On Exchange Server 2003 I am getting several emails a day from a sender " Alexis %LAST NAME " and can not add the email or user to junk email rules because there is no valid email address to block. when i try and classify the email as junk email - the error i get is: the email address or domain name you entered is not valid. valid entries include firstname.lastname@example.org or example.com. It seems that the only way to block this user is to block the entire domain in the smtp virtual server. However, when you choose to do this the smtp virtual server dialogue warns that this is a heavy burden on the exchange server and will slow performance on inbound emails. I only have a few users on this domain. SO - I am looking for some suggestions on how to stop these. I am running GFI mail esentials and have the SCL values at 6 / 5 on the IMF. Thanks.
