    Win XP Pro. OE 6.00.2900.5512 (xpsp.080413-2105)
    ie 8.0.6001.18702

    I went through my block sender list and cleaned it up. I only have entries such as abieslasiocarpa.net. I also added @abieslasiocarpa.net just to be on the safe side. However, I recieved emails from [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], and [email protected]

    today. Same thing with acernegundo.net I recieved 8 from them with the domain block in list.
    What am I missing?

    If an incoming message has a domain name which is different to any in your block list (even if it's different by only one character) it will be allowed through because it does not exactly match any domain name in your block list.

    Check the spelling of the domain names in your block list and carefully compare them with those that are still getting through.
    Chances are the spelling is different somewhere.
