It does not resolve the question/problem I have.
IP addresses are part of every email that is sent to you. These addresses indicate the location from where the email has been sent. They can be used to effectively block emails from coming from that address by making a simple filter within your Cpanel. The following tutorial explains the email IP address, how to find it, and how to create the account filter used to block emails from hitting your email account.
All emails that are delivered come with header information that includes the IP address of their originating server. This information can be used to create a rule that blocks emails from arriving in your mailbox. The header information of an email is not always apparent when you read your emails because it is often hidden from view. You can view email headers by looking at the email source. You can view the email source by using your email client (e.g. Outlook, Thunderbird, Apple Mail, etc.), or by simply saving the email to your desktop and then opening the resulting file with a text editor such as Notepad.
When you are viewing the message source, you can determine the IP by simply looking "receive" and "from". The IP addresses (also called IPv4 addresses) will be in this format: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (e.g. 256.256.256.256). In the future, you may see addresses in a new format IPv6, but for now, emails are still using the older format. For information on IPv6, go to Internet Protocol version 6.
The following steps explain how to add the account-level filter using the IP address information that you obtained from the email header:
If you wanted to add a range of IP addresses, you could do this in Step 6. You can also add further conditions by simply clicking on the "+" sign to the right of the RULE. Bear in mind though that you would need to make sure that the connecting article says "OR" in order for any ONE rule to apply to the email you're trying to block. If you set it to "AND" (which can be selected as per the screenshot at right), then BOTH rules must be true before the ACTION (set to Discard Message) will take place. If you're unsure of how to use multiple rules, then keep it simple and leave it at one rule.
