Email Filters for .ru


Recommended Posts

I realize this is probably the wrong place to ask since I have my email configured to use my hosting services SMTP because I could not get the PHP email to work dependably BUT.

Is there anyway to filter out anything from an email ending in ---> .ru <--- you know... Russia. That seems to be the only place I'm getting consistent spam on the "Contact Us" link. I tried setting up a filter on the hosting service SMTP server but it wants @mail.ru or @something.ru ... those Russian programmers are pretty good and constantly use a different domain ... thx

There is nothing in the software to do this. You may wish to block traffic from that on your server or network if you don't wish to service that country (or any others). Alternatively, you may wish to speak with your hosting provider to see if they have a way to block that.

Ditto with this same issue. This last week I'm getting multiple emails daily from .RU accounts
I could block their IPs if I knew WHERE their IP was being logged at in the software.

I guess I could scan the html access log for any URL with the contact us page and sync it up with the spamming requests

It would be nice if this contact us action was logged somewhere in the forum software.
