    Hi all,
    Although I have put many of these type of Spam emails on the blocked list, they still come thru with a new address.
    Address like
    [email protected]
    Random addresses are impossible to block. Perhaps the content is though.
    Oh, there is the usual list of random words at the bottom of the image to trick the word filter.

    What can I do to limit these from getting to the inbox?

    These seem to have an image instead of text in the body. The links that are in this image are not clickable, nor would I want to.
    [​IMG]
    Are these images/emails able to be blocked thru the security feature of Outlook Express?
    Running WinPX SP2 IE 6.02.0900

    These used to come in only to the Norton Anti Spam folder, now they seem to be coming in the regular Inbox.
    Hope you can help.
    Thanks!
    Gary.

    Boy, I am sure happy Pammy Jo asked basically the same question and received many replies. No one answered my question, but that's OK. I will try the methods suggested to remove these type of GIF only emails.
    Thank you.

    Thanks sekert,
    There is indeed actual text list of random words in the message along with the .gif image.
    So I guess that method of filtering will not work.

    Wonder if there is a filter that would filter a message with a gif in the message body? Probably not.
    These messages are just a nusiance going thru about 10-15 each day. Things could be worse though.
    Take care my friend,
    Gary Rabbitt.. :)
