Hi There,
I have been asked to block emails coming to our Exchange 2013 SP1 server from outside our organizations from specific email address. In my case here I’m using ‘annoying-dude@gmail.com’ as an example.
In Exchange Admin center (EAC) I have created new mail flow rule with following conditions:
===
Block email from ‘annoying-dude@gmail.com’ if the message...Is received from 'Outside the organization' and sender's specified properties match these text patterns: 'Email: annoying-dude@gmail.com'
Do the following...reject the message and include the explanation 'Sender rejected' and Stop processing more rules
===
Well, something is not setup right because we’re still receiving emails from ‘annoying-dude@gmail.com’ Perhaps I’m not digging in the right spot here… Maybe something else needs to be setup?!
Thanks in advance.

Two options here.
1. Use a transport rule, but instead use "if header contains" and put in the email address.
2. Install the antispam agents and then configure sender filtering.

The second is built in, so no need to reinvent the wheel with a transport rule.

Are you sure the email is coming from that address? Could the email just appear to be from that address being spoofed, and is actually something else? Did you check the headers?

Probably some step is missing.

You can also set up delivery message restrictions.

Both cases are Documented in this link  http://exchangeserverpro.com/block-external-emails-exchange-server-2013-mailbox/

if you still had trouble Enable logging for the transport and check what is happen

What are the CU do you have with SP1?

Let us know.
