    You are correct, only the From box is checked, it would have helped if you had told us this up front.
    What made you think that these were coming from @itlgopk.uk?

    What is in the From box?
    It my help if you were to post a screen shot of the header are of one of these emails?

    Below is the screen shot of a typical spam I have been getting. Tell me how to block these emails. I cannot block by domain or email address because often Outlook says the email address is invalid. Plus, the address constantly changes. Notice where the @itlgopk.uk appears. I get 20 to 30 of these emails a day and I cannot find a way to stop them.

    The thing I cannot understand that if Outlook can identify when an email address is invalid, why cannot Microsoft give there customers the ability to block emails where their address are invalid.

    Your attachment is way to small to read any of it, repost a much larger one?

    You failed to mention that you are using SpamFighter. Those emails are in the SpamFighter folder so you're not actually "receiving" them. Looks like SpamFighter is doing its job. Just verify the contents of the spam folder to make sure nothing legitimate is being moved there by an overly aggressive filter and then delete the rest.

    This proves that a picture is worth a 1,000 words!

    I did not mention Spam Fighter because Spam Fighter was not involved with my question. I would like to stop having these emails appear in any folder. I would like to be able to totally block these emails. Yes, they are not going into my inbox, but I have to deal with deleting these emails daily. Yes, it is easy to deleted these emails, but why must I deal with these emails daily?

    I repeat, I want a way to totally block these emails from appearing in any folder.

    As for DaveA's answer, I feel like that is an impropriate answer. I felt a bit insulted with his response. It provided no useful information or help. It was not a professional response.

    Spam Fighter is involved as if it was NOT working, then all of these emails would be in your inbox.
    Let Spam Fighter do it's job and just empty the folder from time to time. You never told us what folder they were in and I just assumed that they were in the inbox.

    There is NO way of stopping in getting these other than start using a different email address.

    Since you had not told us about the usage of Spam Fighter the picture showed that you were.
