Question

I have an email address in my "Block List" Address Book. This email address was in an email I received in the Reply-To section of the email. Why was this email not blocked?

Answer

The "Block List" Address Book blocked emails based on the From: address and therefore did not block emails where the Reply-To address was listed in the "Block List" Address Book.

We have now altered the way that the "Block List" Address Book works and it will now block emails based both on the From and Reply-To addresses.
