    Search the forums and wiki for the word 'blacklist'.

    They are not commands you execute, read the wiki article on how to implement blacklist/whitelist it has the full details of what you need to do.

    Here's the wiki link. It's a bit confusing as it lists 2 ways to do blacklists, but the one Phoenix is talking about is mentioned in the section for modifying the salocal.cf.in file. We're about to do this ourselves. Best of luck!!

    Did you restart ZCS once you added those entries ? Also could you post the output from
    Code:
    su - zimbra
    spamassassin -D --lint
    so we can check that there are no errors in your SA configuration.

    I just added a number of addresses into the salocal file too as blacklisted. But email from them still came in. I, too, did a "zmamavisdctl restart" command after adding them, but apparently it had no effect for some reason. One of the addresses I added was in the format of:

    address*@*.com

    I was trying to catch variants like:

    address1@gmail.com
    address34@yahoo.com

    Any suggestions from the gang out there in Zimbra land?
