Can I block a top-level domain, like .info, in NIS2011?

Is there a way to block emails ending in .info or any other top level domain name in NIS2011?

Help for NIS2011 says the minimum character length of an invalid email address or domain name

must be 10 characters in the Blocked List.

I can't use my Outlook Express 6 because it will only block what is after the @ in the email address.

I know Outlook 2010 can block only top level domain names, but I don't have it.

Hi Jenu,

Welcome to the Norton Community. What is your version of NIS 2011 from Support > About? What OS and SP do you have and is it 32 or 64 bit?

You can enter a domain but I believe you need a fully qualified domain name (such as symantec.com). Please see image below.

Hope this helps and please let us know if you need further clarification or have more questions.

Best wishes.

Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 Service Pack 3

32 bit

NIS 2011   Version: 18.1.0.37

It appears that I'm limited by the 10 character domain limit in the Blocked List.

I just wasn't sure that there was any other way of blocking.

Thanks.

Hi Jenu,

10 characters is the minimum not the maximum.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes.
