How can we automatically block email from free email providers where the address shows up as something like:

Jada Gore [email protected] 

But when you try and reply to the email, you are sending to:

[email protected]

And why do GMail make it so easy for these idiots?

Does electseriofine.tech  exist anyway? And if not, why use it?

This is actually what SPF (Sender Policy Framework) was designed to mitigate.

DMARC and DKIM also are useful in this fight against this demented BS.

As for why they use it, they use it because that domain has not implemented SPF, and so there is not lookup occurring when the message arrives (SPF checks you are who you claim to be.)

Why Google stand for these accounts is another question...
