    How to blanket block spams emails from 'info.xxx'?


    Well now, spam email is coming through with the tag 'info', but every time the address is slightly different after the info.xxx, M$ suggested fix is to add it to the 'blocked sender's' list. The problem is one would have to do that with each info spammola, an endless cycle of madness. Is there any way to just have mail from any 'info' spammer go directly to junk, just using 'info' to filter. This is an annoying thing that started awhile back, now getting worse..

    Hi, unfortunately you give no information as to how you handle email.

    Email client? Which?
    Web mail?

    I handle mail using an email client- two actually. The first is Poppeeper (Free/paid), which in conjunction with a configurable ant-spam program preprocesses mail, which I can also then read and reply to, or delete or add to my SPAM filter program should I so wish. That lets me scan mail across a number of accounts in a couple of seconds.

    Nothing is deleted until I finally delete the SPAM, just in case something is caught that I actually want.

    The SPAM filter also acts on the content of the mail. Clearly you need something more complex than simple rule blocking.

    Consider using something like that that leaves mail on the server, except for SPAM which you actually delete. Valid mail remaining can then be stored as you wish.

    In my case I then run Thunderbird, also linked to the SPAM filtering program.
