We use Symantec Mail Security 5.0.1.

I want to block some individual email addresses and send a bounce back message telling them they have been blocked.

I have tried to go into Policies --> Sender Groups and use the Blocked Senders (Domain Based) but it continues to allow the email messages to be received.

Can anyone help explain how to get this accomplished?
