Another Log Search Wish

Hello MagicSpam,

I had another idea, with the implementation of "hostnames" in the log search, how about the ability to "block" hostnames on the results page.

Hey Jason,

The ability to blacklist senders based on their hostname has been under consideration for a while but hasn't been implemented due to doubts over the effectiveness. The hostname associated with an IP address is under the control of the server operator and hence can be easily changed at any time. It's not uncommon to see all the hostnames in a network change overnight which means that the same network can continue to send spam to your server. In general we recommend that you blacklist these networks using the IP address, so that the spammer has to use a different network.

As such, the ability to block hostnames through the result page is not possible at this time until we have sufficient reason to first add the ability to blacklist by hostname. However, we have created a development ticket and passed it to the product team for further consideration.

Do you have a specific reason for needing such a feature in MagicSpam? Is there a specific problem that you're facing?
