SMTP Blocked Senders

The SMTP Blocked Sender list is an effective method for temporarily canceling a domain or indiviual user's ability to send email on the server. For example, if a particular account is sending an abnormal amount of email, you can add their address to Blocked Senders and they will be unable to send email until you remove them from the Blocked Senders list. Users and/or domains can be left on the list for whatever time you deem appropriate, and can be an effective stop-gap versus actually deleting the user and/or domain from the server.

To view blocked senders, click on the security icon. Then expand the Advanced Settings folder and click SMTP Blocked Senders in the navigation pane. A list of blocked senders will load in the content pane and the following options will be available from the content pane toolbar:

  • New - Adds a new SMTP blocked sender.
  • Edit - Edits the selected blocked sender.
  • Delete - Permanently removes the email or domain from the blocked senders list.
