more email spam from .info sources

sushipup1February 9, 2012

I check the properties on most junk mail that I get and an increasing number are using an address that ends in .info. Gibbish names, as well (at least gibberish in English.) I have blocked several of the domain names, but is there a way I can block ".info" entirely? I use Outlook Express.

It has been a while since I used OE.

You should be able to create a message rule which would take the entire domain directly to Trash. This action would not block them, but rather dispose of them without any action on your part.

Thanks, I'll try a block -> trash on .info and see what happens. Seems like I'm getting several from that source every day. Sigh.

Well, blocking ".info" didn't work as one got thru today supposedly from FTD Florists, but I'll just keep on blocking the full domain names.

click some more rules, most likely its not comming from .info then. .. they are faking the header but the real is there too maybe if you look at source. They are tricky to read with all the gar bage there.

I dont have OE to look at but quickly looked on the web...
Where the From line contains people
Where the Subject line contains specific words
Where the To or CC line contains people
Delete it from server

I don't see anything else of an address when I check the details. There are too many to catch just using specific words in the subject, and there's always something new coming down the pike.

I'll play with it more this weekend. Just a new source of spam. I need stronger spam software, I do believe.

You might also want to check with your ISP and ask why so much spam it making it through to your in-box. I know some ISP's and free, web-based email services offer varying degrees of filtering. You might want to check that as well.
