I have a question on blocking items in Hotmail and possibly other email accounts.

I just blocked the following item and realize that it will only block this exact email address:

Okay, you've added B9861279@wAUpBAEz.blog.gr8planetpub.net to your block list.

I am wondering if it is possible to use a "Wildcard" something like this to block more senders:

@*gr8planetpub.net

Thanks,

Zach

It should. You could always try and find out. Also Hotmail will be getting updated SPAM filtering, etc when its changed to more of an Outlook style of operating and look.

Thanks for the reply. I will give it a try.

I remember back a few years when you could use the prefix to the @ sign and block all of say,"Viagra" emails coming into you email box. I always wondered why they stopped that feature.
