    Like most people I get a lot of spam and most of it goes into my Junk folder. However, when I get frequent spam from the same source I set up a filter to put it straight into my deleted box. This works with most of them but I'm getting plagued with spam where the sender is:

    <removed>

    removed is one of my email addresses.

    I've tried lots of variations of rules but none of them touch this message.

    Any suggestions welcomed!

    Something funny about the sender above. I copied it from one of the offending emails but some of the words disappeared when I submitted it to you. Trying again but typing it in from scratch:

    the sender is: British Daily GB <removed>

    I have removed your email addresses. You are complaining about getting spam so posting the email address is guaranteed to get the spambots adding you to the lists & getting even more
