This would be a good idea. Never paid attention to how often spammers switch email addresses but maybe they might eventually run out.
 
But instead of making it a FROM|TO pair like autowhitelist, just make it a single FROM::NULL, that way every time one of our domains customers blacklists an email address I could query a table and apply it to all my SFE domains customers blacklists. Eventually they will start running out of fake email address. Would really like to see less cr@p in the quarantine day after day.

How often when someone deletes a spam message does it come from the same sender?  I get spam, maybe for home loans or something but it is quite rare that the same type of spam would come from the same sender email address.

They usually send them from different sender addresses.

No not exactly.

I want it to work just like the auto white list, but instead an auto black list.

Right now if a spam comes in, I can send it through to my mailbox, this creates an auto whitelist so that it always comes through.

I'd like to see the opposite.

If a user deletes a spam, it creates a black list from that email to their email, if that spam comes in again, it gets send to null so they don't ever have to deal with it again.

The biggeest complaint I get is that, i've deleted that spam, why does it keep coming in.

kspare,

If I understand your request, this is already possible. Most blacklists, including the two that blocks specific email addresses and email domains, have an option to "Do not quarantine rejected emails from this blacklist". Is this what you're asking for?

We have the auto white list for users, and it works great.

I was thinking a great idea would be to have an auto black list.

If a match is found, it simply deletes the message rather than commit it to the quarantine.

This helps the system auto manage itself by even further reducing the amount of spam that gets into the system, and reducing the spam a user has to sift through.

Thoughts?
