    Blocking certain junk mail


    I am running Outlook.com and I have at least 10-15 junk mails per day regarding Bitcoin and blocking every one of them only provokes the sender to make a subtle change to their address for the same Bitcoin junk to get through.

    Does anyone know of any setting within Outlook.com that will filter out messages that have Bitcoin in their title/address because it is driving me nuts.

    So for an example if a mail comes through and even mentions Bitcoin it will be automatically filtered out

    Addit or soem sort of software that will do this for me??

    Block the domain (the part of the sender's address after the ampersand @) and not the entire sender's address.

    FYI: Just add the domain to be blocked.

    Or else you might consider using a desktop email client with spam filters.

    Go to Outlook Webmail and Right click on the spam message title and "Mark as Spam".
    If you have that many on the one subject and content then it should work quite quickly.

    Other manual methods take longer and they will get around it.

    Ok Helmut but it is just that I want the stuff with Bitcoin just automatically blocked and I think just blocking the doamin name should work. It s a oity they don't have a settings that would for example block any message with Bitcoin in the mail in toto.
