JUNK mail

At some stage recently I have inadvertantly clicked on a suspect JUNK MAIL link which has resulted in my getting anything up to TEM junk mails per day.

 

They are all sent from JUNKERMAIL.co.uk...BUT all have a different address name by using a prefix of several random letters.

It has been therefore only possible for me to BLOCK individual address AND NOT everything from JUNKERMAIL.

Anyone any ideas if it IS possible to block  all from JUNKERMAIL?????

Re: JUNK mail

Did setting the FROM condition to just JUNKERMAIL.co.uk not work? I don't get spam in my inbox (don't want it either) so I can't test to be 100%.

But about clicking on a recent junk mail. Have you set your email so that it doesn't automatically load external images? Loading external images is how spammers verify if an account is active. If you haven't made that change to your account yet, click the three bars -> Settings -> Mail and untick 'Allow pre-loading of externally linked images'

This is just add to Shelke's post to clarify that you will need to use Virgin Media's webmail filters rather than the 'Blacklist sender' option

Click on the Settings tab (the 3 black horizontal bars on the extreme right hand side of the screen) and then click on the Filter Rules option from the menu on the left of the screen.

Also note from the image in Shelke's post that the condition says  'Contains' not 'Is exactly' or 'Matches'.

Re: JUNK mail

I'd actually go a step further and leave the TLD off

That way if the spammers try using junkermail.com instead of junkermail.co.uk - those mails will be caught as well the same for trying to use any other TLD to try and get round the rule such as .net etc.

Re: JUNK mail

I’ve been getting bombarded with spam from addresses like####@####.junkermail.com, always from junkermail.com address.  God knows how these scumbags got my email address.

Its an ntlworld email, virgin media spam filters don’t seem to be blocking them.

So, have you tried the suggestion set out in the last two posts?Smiley Frustrated

Remember to set 'contains' to 'Junkermail' to catch all variations.

Re: JUNK mail

Why can’t companies like Virgin media automatically add these known junk emailers into a list to automatically redirect them into the junk mail folder so millions of people don’t have to suffer this problem. I dont min dit going into my junk folder, I do mind having to see it in my inbox and having to constantly delete it.

 

ive just added a junkermail condition into my spam filter (a lot recently contain that word), so let’s see how that goes to easing it.
