    Blocking '.info' (2003)

    I'd like to be able to block domains such as .info or cellphones.info. Domains where I cannot include the address out to the @ sign? Any suggestions? I can't be the only one that wishes to do this.

    Many thanks,

    Elle

    Try using the domain form '@*.info'.

    Ahhh, then wildcards can be used. I'll try it. And thank you.

    To be honest I'm not certain, I can't find any documentation on it, which is why I said 'try it'. <img src=/S/anigrin.gif border=0 alt=anigrin width=19 height=19> Post back to this thread if it does or doesn't work.

    By the way, welcome to the Lounge. Usually the answers are more definitive.

    I didn't think of trying that, but alas, it does not seem to work. I guess they have done away with "junk senders.txt", makes me wonder if this is in some other file or registry setting.

    If I find an answer I'll post it.

    Cheers,

    Yes, I think it's in the registry <!mskb=889692>Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 889692<!/mskb>, see if you can import it from a created file: <!mskb=822974>Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 822974<!/mskb>.
