    I’m getting spam from gmail addresses like: b.o.ris.1.97.7.g.o.rb.un.ov@gmail.com

    Will a multi wildcard statement, something like *.*.*.*.*.*.*@gmail.com match addresses like this, so I can ban them?

    Thank you!

    also, would @*.*.* match @bursa303.win.win

    Hi Chris,
    I am sorry, the plugin does not support regular expression in the options. I checked the code and I found that we escape the regular expression.

    Normal users can not write regular expression and that’s why this decision was. I can add an option to allow expert mode where you can use regular expressions but please do note that in that case
    .ino will match xinfo, sinfo etc(. will start substituting single character).

    Regards
    Brajesh

    If you are adding this to the plugin as a checkbox selection, could you please write some instructions and regex examples that will effectively address the examples above? This would be very helpful.

    Thank you, sir!

    Hi Chris,
    I just checked again and we do allow the wildcards ( * and ? ). I will look a little more and see if we can get an expression to match above format with these two? If not, there is going to be expert mode.
