I use Outlook at work, and I get a lot of spam originating from faked-up addresses in a domain called “ymail”. Outlook supposedly has a “Junk Mail” feature that will block certain addresses, and according to the help, I should be able to block the entire domain as well. I added both “ymail.com” and “@ymail.com” to the “Blocked Senders” list, but these still get through.
Does anyone know what I really need to add to that list to block all e-mail from that domain?
If you’ve added “ymail.com” to the blocked list and are still getting email from that domain, I would bet that the domain you’re seeing is not the domain it’s really coming from. Have you opened up the headers and inspected them?
Given that info, and while I agree with you that the block list should work, I’d go with Quartz’s suggestion. BTW, are you using Microsoft Update, and if so are you up-to-date on your updates? Because I find that my spam will sort of creep up from two-three per day to six-seven per day and then go right back down after an update.
