Since receiving more SPAM recently, I searched this forum and found the information on Spamcop. However, after reviewing the threads, it seems to me that the process for managing SPAM by the user is onerous and it doesn't appear to working effectively for users.

Out of curiosity, I saved some of the SPAM to text files. These files included the message header which lists the domain and IP address of the SPAM mail server. I then used online tools to check if it was flagged as known to having been and/or currently generating SPAM. Not surprisingly, the servers I checked were indeed flagged as actively generating SPAM currently.

Does the Sonic email system provide support for Real-time Blackhole Lists (RBL) or DNS-based Blackhole Lists (DNSBL)? If it does, this appears to be a more effective and timely solution compared to Spamcop and would also benefit all Sonic email users in contrast to the separate silos required for each user by Spamcop.

Please advise, thanks.
