    Anyone know of a better way to block international mail than to setup rules and add 145 country domains? My ISP Cox puts brackets outside the email address e.g. <> if it originates outside the U.S. even if it's a local email address but someone is sending outside the country. Adding a rule with < > only fails unless two brackets are the users email and of course that's never going to be an email address. Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated.

    Non-US emails still usually arrive from the usual .com/.net/.org TLDs. Uh, why would you want to do this?

    I don't want to block by Top Level domain name, just mail originating outside the U.S. As I said my ISP knows what mail is International so it can't be that big a secret. I don't even need to know what much. They put brackets on any International mail all I would need to do create a rule that sends any mail that arrives with these brackets to junk.

    As for the why? That's where the junk mail is coming from!
