Hi,
Add a Rule (either global or per user) that tests sender & does action you desire. Or you could do it with a script if you wanted more control. If they always connect from a certain IP (or range of IP's) you can add an IP range for them.

I created a global rule. Thank you
Is there a version of Hmailserver that can be used for commerical uses? I'm a consultant and I have a couple of clients who are very interested in your email application.
Thanks

Hi,
OK cool glad that helped.

hMailServer can be used in a commercial environment:
http://www.hmailserver.com/index.php?page=functionality
(I was trying to find the actual license agreement on the site but only have document inside hmailserver but it details what you can & cannot do with it.)

I believe you can't use the built-in MSSQL CE database though if used commercially.

I would like to see a script or a action in Hmail (and no not adding domains line by line in the whitelist or blacklist like it is now) for hmail to scan a list (txt file is fine) and see if that domain is in that list. Obviously if it's in the blacklist then reject it and or delete it and if in a white list let it go through. As well as a script that allows all outgoing mail from clients add the receipiets address to a whitelist.

Feel free to create one and share it.

I believe there is already a script for this in the contributed section
