    OK anyway back to reality. The internet is hostile. You can block whoever you want. Ignore the hippies that tell you that you are a bad person because you want to block the world.

    Just remember, that you WILL block people you shouldn't. For example, some of your friends in North Washington might actually show up on Canadian IP addresses.
    My main reason for this approach was simply due to the fact that I run a local triathlon, I dont expect anyone from across seas to attend. That said I would like the opportunity to still reach those individuals just in case, like you said what if they are as close as Canada and could actually travel to race the event.

    I do however like the idea of

    I think I will try to explore both options limiting those so far removed from my local state, like china, since they will not be making the x-mile trip to my state to run a 2 hour triathlon. But also setup RBLs so that I still block spammers and allow overseas competition if they are interested.

    Void, thank you for not simply pasting in your work, I like to understand what I am doing and work through it in my own way. I am running Linux (Debian 6.0) and Zimbra (7.1) and do use IPTables, do you think you can point me in the direction of shell scripts for iptables (just to use as an example while I get my bearings)? I will have some time this weekend to research it fully and start putting something together.

    They don't have to be, it's where their email server is hosted that would matter

    For sure.

    You'll find that if you block all of Canada, people with Blackberries can no longer email you.

    At least, that was my experience, since RIM hosts their servers up there.
    Using:
    zcs-7.1.4_GA_2555.RHEL6_64.20120105094542
