Using spam assassin via c-panel, how do I block the the full range of an ISP's IP numbers?  The net range below?

For instance, I am get spam from 162.251.238.92, the ownership is:

NetRange:       162.251.232.0 - 162.251.239.255
CIDR:           162.251.232.0/21
NetName:        FHUB-NET-9
NetHandle:      NET-162-251-232-0-1
Parent:         NET162 (NET-162-0-0-0-0)
NetType:        Direct Allocation
OriginAS:       AS53340, AS62956

So how do I setup a new rule for it to cover their full range of IP addresses?  I know how to do an individual IP address, but I cant keep adding single IP's as they  change.

Thanks

Thanks

Better I think to blacklist the sender and perhaps set up an all headers rule for something in the subject or body of the email. I use the latter for spamassassin at my email ISP here.

Thanks, but neither of those remain constant.  I tried a global blacklist like this, but it did not cath this one:

blacklist_from *.ru

and

*.ru

Neither worked.

Try __VegasNAP__ in a header rule.

Spammers do not use constant IP addresses but subject and body are often constant.

I have an email that says it came from Google, my email ISP (Spamassassin) rejected it, but my forwarding ISP accepted it. I have blacklisted it at my forwarding ISP.

Here is the Message ID
