I'm getting lots of spam in several of my email addresses from (esp. three) "new" TLDs (specifically: .top, .science, and .review. ) and I really really need to stop them!

I've tried Account Level Filtering with both ".top" and "top" -- and they still pour in! I've tried turning on Spam Assassin and told it to block those TLDs across all my email addresses. Spam Assassin apparently just stuffs emails from UN-blocked TLDs with a ton of crap (that confuses the heck out of my 92-yr-old mother!) and it still lets all the "blocked" TLDs walk right into my inboxes!

I want absolutely positively NO emails from the TLDs: .top, .science, and .review. I've tried everything I can think of! What am I doing wrong?! PLEASE help! (As you can probably tell, I'm at my wit's end!)

(Yes, I know all the "why you shouldn't block a TLD" comments: Do. Not. CARE. Want them to go away forever! Any decent company that wants my attention is NOT use those spam TLDs.)

Hello Elenor,

Thank you for your question on blocking emails from specific TLDs. You can do so by setting up Account level filtering. You can block emails by evaluating email address, subject, body content, etc.

Kindest Regards,
Scott M
