Reject Senders
This is the list of disallowed email addresses that cannot send email through your SMTP server and will be rejected before they can send any data. You can use wildcards (e.g. *@*.tw, customerdirect@*.*) or leave blank for no restrictions. Note that this list overrides any 'Allowed Senders' and any 'auto-allowed' senders in the SPAM blocking module.
Example interface
*@c?olmail.com
Importing data

Press the import button, also shown as >> when the interface is small, to import data into the list.The following file types are supported:

        CSV (Comma delimited) (*.csv)
        Text (Tab delimited) (*.txt)
        All Files (*.*)
        
The data should be separated by commas, tab characters or newlines.
Each data entry must match the validation wildcard '*@*.*'. Entries that do not match will be discarded.
Duplicate entries are not imported more than once.
Always Allow Senders
