Content filtering domain wildcards
Question asked by Thomas Leylan - 8/16/2022 at 2:41 PM
I've been writing them this way forever but the docs don't show such an example so... I wanted to confirm my assumption re: content filtering of domains. I have set wildcards on.

dominos.com       This would catch anything from that domain correct?
*.dominos.com     This would catch anything from e-offers.dominos.com I assume

would *dominos.com without the . (dot) catch emails from any domain that ends with "dominos.com"? I assume this ultimately might not be not a good idea as it could match some domains unintentionally.

Hello Thomas, 

Thanks for posting to the community. 
Those look correct. There shouldn't be any issues unless people are sending from a dominos.com domain. 

Please let me know if you have any questions. 

Kind Regards,

Thank you. I figured out the issue... is there any way to "disable" a content filtering "set" (don't know if you call it a set). I have a lot of text matching and domain matching rules and I wanted to see if some could be removed. So I started a new set and will incrementally add rules to it. This one just has 1 I'm being spammed by dominos pizza marketing.

For now I've set up a rerouting action to a spam account rather than deleting the emails but it would be nice to disable the other set.
