    I have OE 6 as my email and for the past 3 weeks I have been receiving
    spam about "Refinance your home", "Great mortgage rates". etc.

    I am getting them at the rate of 6 to 8 a day.

    I do not open them or reply to them but I put their link in OE's "block sender"
    list but more keep coming with different names.

    They come as: [email protected], [email protected], etc. It is always @beniwail.us but different names.

    My ISP says there is nothing that can be done.

    Hope someone out there can help me get rid of this nagging problem.

    Thanks,

    skyman

    I can suggest something to try. Open your new message section of OE go to Tools > Message Rules > Blocked sender list > Blocked Sender tab > Add > then put in beniwail.us and add that domain. See if that works.

    Thanks for the advice. I get no more from beniwail.us but am now getting them from others.

    Oh Well, maybe they will get tired...

    Thanks for all the help. I have not received any spam for about a week so I guess
    there must be a cut off date for the automatic senders.
