    Need help to block subtle spam.

    I'm pretty good at trapping spam, but this instance and similar ones in Outlook has me beat:
    Here's the data:

    I can't figure out how to create a rule that will catch this. Any ideas? Also, this sort of spam seems to use the empty characters that look like a rectangle. Any way to catch names or addresses that work this way?

    You may not be able to make a rule due to symbols in the subject line, what you can do is right click the email and choose Junk from the dropdown menu, then on the junk menu you can choose block sender, then click Junk email options and set the level of Junk email protection to high. As a last resort you can click Safe Lists Only, then you'll only see mail in you inbox from senders on your safe list.

    You may have already done some of this, IMO the nuclear option is Safe Lists Only to limit your inbox to only those on your safe list.
