keep getting unwanted e-mails from fictitous people with ever changing names. After checking the properties of these e-mails, the Ip address has 2 parts to it - one part always changes nd the other part, in parenthesis, stays the same. Here are 2 real examples: I have tried to block senders' message in Outlook but the sender keeps changing. How can I stop these emails?

Also known as SPAM.

If you have Outlook (not Outlook Express), you can apply filtering

You can buy third-party software that will allow you to block based off IP addresses. I'm not familiar with any free ones, but you can look.

One other alternative would be to create rules for your emails based off keywords in either the subject or the content.

Let me know if this helps,
