Is Sendermail(2) not checked when blocking a domain or email in SMTP Blocks?
Problem reported by Richard Clafton - 4/3/2019 at 12:29 PM
We get a lot of spam that comes from Amazon Hosted Email and keeps getting through the SMTP blocks.

I have gettheunlimitedleadgenerator.com and also info@gettheunlimitedleadgenerator.com in the SMTP blocks, but they never get blocked.    Which is why I ask the question.  

Without the custom rules working in 7016 I have no way of combatting this at this time.  These spammers are hiding behind the reputation(!) of Amazon to get their mail through the spam checkers.

Is this being ignored?   A simple yes or no would suffice.
