Blocking Incoming Email by Country

Are you receiving a lot of inbound email to MDaemon or SecurityGateway from a particular country?

Does your company do business with this country?

Do your email users only need to send and receive email within your own country?

If you run a small business and all of your clients and suppliers are local, then chances are you’re not going to be sending email to certain countries across the globe. Depending on the type of business, companies may want to block all incoming connections from these countries. This is especially useful because a lot of international email traffic contains spam, malware, phishing attempts, and viruses. Taking the time to deal with these types of messages can lead to lost productivity.

There’s an easy way to block these connections. In this video, I show you how to block mail by originating country using the DNS-BL features in MDaemon and SecurityGateway.
