Re: Whitelist Valid Emails

Sorry Bill, it doesn't run at all. My script, with the actual domain name obscured is as follows: Sub OnSMTPData(oClient, oMessage) Dim BlockedAccounts(100) Dim J varDomain = "MY DOMAIN" BlockedAccounts(1)= "test.user" & "@" & varDomain Result.Value = 0 For J = 0 to uBound(BlockedAccounts) If J = oM...

They do this in an effort to reduce spam, although the reality is they understand very little about the spam problem and these blocks only tend to an...
