I use win 2000 / verizon DSL / outlook express. Somebody keeps sending me email and I can't set up a rule to successfully block them. What they do is put some random name into the From section and use any topic under the sun for a subject. Part of their IP address always changes and part of it stays the same except the last digits. In outlook express, I rt click on the message / go to properties / details / message source and this is what i get: Received: from 59.44.117.2 ([172.18.12.133]) by vms041.mailsrvcs.net (Sun Java System Messaging Server 6.2-6.01 (built Apr 3 2006)) with ESMTP id <0JEC008P3QMXO39C@vms041.mailsrvcs.net> for mikefinnegan@verizon.net; Sat, 03 Mar 2007 17:59:31 -0600 (CST) Received: from ydzozoo (59.44.117.2) by sv17pub.verizon.net (MailPass SMTP server v1.2.0 - 112105154401JY+PrW) with SMTP id <5-15251-215-15251-10344-1-1172966359> for vms041pub.verizon.net; Sat, 03 Mar 2007 17:59:22 -0600 Received: from uok ([180.57.115.115]) by ydzozoo with Microsoft SMTPSVC(5.0.2195.4905); Sun, 04 Mar 2007 07:58:40 +0800 Date: Sun, 04 Mar 2007 07:50:50 +0800 From: "Paul" <gpnnur@onpole.com> Subject: farmyard X-Originating-IP: [59.44.117.2] To: <mikefinnegan@verizon.net> Message-id: <000501c75def$de3969e0$737339b4@uok> MIME-version: 1.0 X-MIMEOLE: Produced By Microsoft MimeOLE V6.00.2800.1106 X-Mailer: Microsoft Outlook Express 6.00.2800.1106 Content-type: multipart/related; type="multipart/alternative"; boundary="----=_NextPart_000_0001_01C75E32.EC5249A0" X-Priority: 3 X-MSMail-priority: Normal ------=_NextPart_000_0001_01C75E32.EC5249A0 Content-Type: multipart/alternative; boundary="----=_NextPart_001_0002_01C75E32.EC54E1B0" ------=_NextPart_001_0002_01C75E32.EC54E1B0 Content-Type: text/plain; charset="windows-1250" Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable Another email example: Received: from 202.173.57.102 ([172.18.12.132]) by vms169131.mailsrvcs.net (Sun Java System Messaging Server 6.2-6.01 (built Apr 3 2006)) with ESMTP id <0JE7002UHT9VGID0@vms169131.mailsrvcs.net> for mikefinnegan@verizon.net; Thu, 01 Mar 2007 02:08:33 -0600 (CST) Received: from xtsfbd (202.173.57.102) by sv2pub.verizon.net (MailPass SMTP server v1.2.0 - 112105154401JY+PrW) with SMTP id <2-17176-146-17176-7180-1-1172736495> for vms169131pub.verizon.net; Thu, 01 Mar 2007 02:08:23 -0600 Received: (qmail 11820 invoked from network); Thu, 01 Mar 2007 16:11:17 +0800 Received: from unknown (HELO cbcuba) (100.191.201.153) by xtsfbd with SMTP; Thu, 01 Mar 2007 16:11:17 +0800 Date: Thu, 01 Mar 2007 16:03:57 +0800 From: "Battle" <jciaq@dunyaship.com> Subject: 1, while in Hong Kong the Hang Seng index fell 496.

spammers come up with new tricks and twists just as fast as the malware coders do. i dont use outlook but you can get third party software for outlook that might prove helpful

Hi ma3572, If you are troubled by persistant spamming from a certain domain then it's possible to block all messages from that domain. Anything before the @ will be included in the rule. From OE Tools>Message Rules>Blocked Senders and add the domain (not the email address.) E.G domain to be be blocked is spamisp.com then anything along these lines will be blocked automatically Jack@spamisp.com h6412@spamisp.com random alphanumeric@spamisp.com etc. etc. You can also do the same by setting up a specific rule: Where sender is @spamisp.com (leave everything before the "&" blank) then action is.. Hope this helps. Please check first, that none of your chums are using the domain you intend to block! Regards paws

I added mailsrvcs.net to my block senders list as you suggested. We'll see what happens.

Hi, As shelf life said they come up with new tricks and twist, but this may hold 'em at bay for a while. I tend to use "Mailwasher" (free version) so I can delete stuff from the server rather than bother to download it. If you plug the name into your favourite search engine it will come up with the details. Nick Bolton from New Zealand wrote the original application but I think he sold it on fairly recently.
