Exchange 2007: Like most people, we are getting inundated with junk emails. I noticed that a good proportion of them are coming from email addresses from the top level domain ".date"
We never get genuine emails from .date domains, so I decided to do a transport rule to block them. I've tried two different ways so far, but neither of them have had any effect...
Firstly I tried a rule with 'When the From address contains specific words' box checked. And I put .date in the data.
Then I tried a rule with the 'When the From address contains text patterns' and I put .date in the data.
With both of then I specified an action to silently drop the message. These rules are not working. I suspect it is the .(dot) which is causing the problem. I cannot use "date" without the dot because some genuine emails will have "date" in another part of the email address.
Can I get this working?
