Once again swamped with spam!

Only me or anyone else? After a brief spell from the last lot, once again here they come! Health supplements, diet foods, electrical music devices, and of course all the foreign dating sites with ladies looking for Englishmen (no thank you, one wife is all I need).

As much as I click on report spam, still bombarding my inbox. If it wasn't for so many of my contacts having my blueyonder email addy, I'd go to another provider!

Re: Once again swamped with spam!

Mine are all coming from - return@asturiex.com

I blacklisted it straight away so they are all going straight into my spam folder awaiting VM to empty it!

Re: Once again swamped with spam!

Loads of spam coming into inbox Blacklisting sender and creating filter rules make are completely ineffective. What is the solution???

Re: Once again swamped with spam!

I'm getting these too.

It's important to note that the spammers have changed tactics slightly:

@Kev_B 

Notice here how the spammers have included an SPF record for the sending domain.  This would appear to indicate, that they either control the domain legitimately OR have gained control of someone elses domain.

I would certainly contact GoDaddy - the domain registrar for  asturiex.com and point out to to them that:

  1. The domain is being used to send spam.
  2. The spamming domain validates using SPF

I would also consider contacting Amazon as the spammers are once again using their servers to send this crap.

Name:    ec2-35-157-246-176.eu-central-1.compute.amazonaws.com
Address:  35.157.246.176

An alternative approach might me to consider contacting the ICO and passing copies of these mails to them so they can take action on your behalf.

Kev - could we look into ways of dealing with these scumbags?

Re: Once again swamped with spam!

Yes - firstly a big thank you as the tsunami spamming had stopped for a while. 

 

Now its back, exactly the same e mails as before, same content, same subjects, even sent at the same times.

return@asturiex.com.

I blacklisted, set up filters to disregard. Still goes to my spam folder, so still using my data allowance.very very annoying. It’s exactly the same people as before. 

If so many are receiving this and upset then really VM should block them.

Function of blacklist is to keep your Inbox free of listed sender's emails by moving them to your Spam folder; if the  blacklist filter rule is matched it will not process subsequent rules, i.e. your disregard filter rules will never be reached.
