I just watched qmail reject a new address from the date domain.

The syntax is indeed .@*\.date$ in badmailfrom.

I'm still running an older version of the toaster on a CentOS 5.11 machine.  I have a CentOS 7 box up and ready for a migration, but I'm loathe to move over from a machine that's working well even though it's past its date.  I suppose the time draws nigh, anyway.

And, for what it's worth, the latest rash of spam seems to be from IPs in Italy.

I put in a spam gateway, specifically, a Sonicwall device because I could never control spam using stock qmailtoaster stuff until Dspam (to much fiddling), but to your question:

It'd be preferable to put an entry in /etc/spamdyke/blacklist_senders file '@domain.tld' so email would never reach the smtp daemon.

Here's the badmailfrom wiki anyway:

Greetings all,

We are seeing a boatload of spammy mail from new top level domains, <dot> date in particular.  Spamassassin is catching most of them and flagging them as spam, but I'd like to block the domain entirely.  Is this possible in badmailfrom? Will it support a wildcard such as .@*\.date$, or is the syntax different?  I realize there may be legitimate businesses emailing from that domain at some point in the future, but that future is certainly not now.

Also, if there is a better way of doing this, I am open to suggestions.
