Hello, iRedMail people.

I am wondering if you could share with us your recommendations on what may be the easiest way to get rid of annoying emails from senders who don't respect requests to stop sending unwanted messages or who don't provide unsubscribe links?

I want to be able to block/reject their messages outright rather than receive the messages marked as spam or placed in spam folder.  How can I do it on a specific individual email addresses or whole domain basis?  I can't block the whole gmail.com but I want to zap all messages from a 'badboy@gmail.com'.  And I want to block every email from *@badboysdomain.com

Thanks in advance

Thanks, this is a good read.
Do you know if I blacklist someone will sender receive any notification stating that the message was rejected?

Yes. Sender server (and sender) will receive message like "BLACKLISTED".

Does my reply help a little? How about buying me a cup of coffee ($5) as an encouragement?
