Can I block emails by Chinese mainland IP address instead of language encoding?
I need to talk to my friends and receive Chinese language emails from Taiwan, Hong Kong. Honestly, I am annoyed not having that option. It will be nice to have option to block IP address traffic by specific country or you simply set up a zone and let people block it freely.

Have you received one or more spam mails in a foreign language?
1- Right click on the junk mail
2- Click down on "junk mail"
3- Click on "Block sender"
4- Once all the recipients are blocked, USE THE METHOD ABOVE!

It really works, but only when the recipients are blocked.

Good day everyone, and long live peacefully :)

please go to your webmail also and block the emails in a spam filter and please effective use of blacklist with a domain, I found this issue and also try the above-said issue, where some sort of it is usable but not the full proof solution, where the domain blacklist will provide you peace of mind thanks
