    I have Outlook Express and have been receiving spam from a casino type info which has an address with several numerals, spaces, words, etc. usually starts with 00.... I have Ella for a spam blocker. I am finding that I cannot direct this mail to Spam, nor does my "block sender" work. Are they able to disable my spam blocker? I have no other problem with other spam. I usually get 2 a day. Thanks for your advice

    You might try setting your email to show full headers and discover the true email address that way. You will be able to see the full return path.

    Only thing is that EVERY address is like one number and/or letter off. Each one is different like it is randomly chosen. The address is about 18 numbers, underlined at different places plus date, title, etc.

    The full subject line is something like 00733_ONL_002a_26_JUL-2006 1153922401 ListID-00027. Every entry is definitely from a casino type message and I cannot block this sender nor can I classify it as spam. I tried creating a rule such as starts with 00 or ListID-, every day the date changes and the rules are not working. Ugggggggggghhhhhhhhhh!!!!!:eek:

    Is the email actually addressed to you, your exact email addy?

    Does mail come directly to Outlook or through a web based mail server first (like SBC/ATT DSL does)?

    Are you making a rule in Outlook or your Spam app?

    Have you tried to 'Move up' your rule?
