Block a domain in outlook

Product using Norton - Outlook AKA look out

Question for those of you who are much more proficient using Norton that me. I know how to block a sender but I cannot find how to block a domain. Is there something I am missing. A large amount of spam/junk mail I receive is from the same domain just different user names and I want to just block the domain all together does any one know if this is possible and if so how do I get this accomplished?

Thanks,

Gene

Welcome Gene,

Have you contacted your ISP and asked for help there? Their mail server should have filters which can do that job. I like to try and do as much filtering before the stuff gets to my system as possible.

hope this helps

If your Email is hotmail or live, you can use the "Blocked Senders List" to block domains.

Re: Block a domain in outlook

Hi gosteen,

Since you have specified about Outlook in your post, I assume that you use one among Outlook 2003 / 2007 / 2010. 

With Outlook, you can block a domain by going to 'Actions' (from Outlook Menu bar) >> 'Junk E-mail' >> 'Junk E-mail Options' >> then Choose 'Blocked Senders' Tab and add the domain that you wish to block.

If you are using NIS / N360 and a supported version of Outlook, then this domain address will get added to Norton's blocked list automatically. You can also add the domain name to Norton's blocked list by going to 'Norton AntiSpam' Settings, then to 'Blocked Senders' (using 'Configure' Option) and add the domain name (choosing type as 'Domain' here). 

Hope this helps!
