    Default Blocking a specific email address

    Ok guys I know this is easy to do I'm just not sure how to do it in Zimbra. I want to bounce email from a specific email address (somefreak@adomain.com). Is there a place in the admin interface I can do this for all accounts on my domain? Like if any email comes from somefreak@adomain.com they just get a bounce message saying something like "Rejected Due To Content" or "Source Address Rejected"?

    Thanks guys,

    Ok I tried this listed here:

    Postfix blacklist or reject an email address

    The zimbra installation is a little different and I'm not sure where the options have to be entered ... I'm guessing it's an internal type of thing? I'll keep looking later

    Still like a hand if anyone has an idea

    Isn't this wiki article on blacklisting what you need?

    I hammered through the wiki for a while and didn't really find anything. This will definitely work it just wont respond with an error to the sender but I'm sure I can deal with that lol

    Thanks!!

    The problem in responding to the sender is that you may be responding to the wrong person. If the headers are forged you'll just end-up spamming someone who may not be 'guilty'. IMO, for a blacklisted address it's far better to just drop the mail or connection.

    Very valid actually. There's anough traffic being generated by unsolicited and garbage email. Now that I think of it I've actually gotten bounce notices from servers regarding accounts I've never heard of claiming I sent them spam and it was rejected.

    um ... ok I'm missing something. I only have a amavisd.conf file and not an amavis.conf ... should I create an amavis.conf file? if I put the hash entry in amavisd.conf and restart amavisd the line dissapears and the change is moot

    The file you should modify is amavisd.conf.in otherwise the changes will get overwritten every restart of Zimbra, do you have the .in file?
