It seems that most spam comes from foreign TLD's..seeing I (like many others) do not regularly communicate with people in china, russia, korea etc is there a way to filter mail so you only get the TLD's you love and know (COM, NET, ORG, GOV!!, INFO) plus maybe a way to add friendlys..(CO.UK)

java scri_pt:emoticon('B)',%20'smid_18')

If you have a mail server or mail software that supports DNS based blocklists, there are a number of them out there for almost any country you can think of. Just do a google search for "Korea DNS Blacklist" or whatever country you are having problems with. Personally, I block Korea, Japan, Brazil, and China at the server level, and that seems to account for about 80% of the spam that makes it past my other BLs.

I really expect not, based on the way I read it .. wanting to (for example) "only 'allow' an e-mal 'from' anywhere based on the From: being a .COM TLD" .... the initial argument was going to be that nowehre is it 'written' that a .COM is limited to existing only within a certain "location" .... and in contrast to the description offered, it's very rare that I see any spam that is "from" a contry specific TLD ....

So basically, the point was going to be to point out that the From: really doesn't matter, it's the IP address .... which then leads one back to your suggestion ....
