regex regular expression for .me domains RSS

1

Hi All. Can I get some help with a regex filter to block all emails containing .me TLDs? I'm getting a ton of email containing links such as http://check.phytonatural-skin-planned.me and I'd like to block them. It needs to block the .me TLD, yet still allow domains such as .me.com and others that begin with .me. It'll take me hours to do what I'm sure someone here can do in minutes. Thanks in advance. Jeff

btw, I have this regex in my filter list already, but according the test, it doesn't work. Maybe it can be fixed. (?i).*((\.|http://)([a-z0-9]+)(\.(biz|info|us))/)(\?[a-z0-9]+|[a-z0-9]+\?[a-z0-9])

@Jeff Zell: I think the current regex checks for domain names ending with TLDs .biz, .info, and .us only. You can block domain names in emails ending with .me or .me.com using the following regular expression for example:

.*http://[^\r\n\s]*\.(me|me\.com)(\s|/)

In theory, that regex should, but it doesn't work. Or at least it doesn't pass the test when I try examples. I'm not sure where I got it from.

Can I ask for a tweak to the .me regex? Please modify the code so it blocks http://example.me and http://example.me/ -- many of the links don't have the trailing / after the .me part.

Wish I knew regex. Thanks a bunch.

@Jeff Zell: Try the following:

.*http://[^\r\n\s]*\.(me|me\.com)($|/[^\r\n\s]*|\s).*

This covers six scenarios:

1. links ending with .me
2. links ending with .me.com
3. links ending with .me/
4. links ending with .me.com/
5. links ending with .me/something
6. links ending with .me.com/something
