Recent increase in spam e-mail

Over the last week there has been s marked increase in Spam email making it into my inbox (10 to 12 a day). I am marking them as Spam but a very email is for a voucher and seems to come from a different address. I've tried blacklisting the emails but  again every address  is different. Is there anything else I can do

TIA Cesar

Re: Recent increase in spam e-mail

If the email address domain (part after the @) is the same then consider creating a filter rule similar to the following (or similar rule if your email client supports filtering):

Do make sure to change Apply rule if all condition are met to Apply rule if any condition met if more than one condition is created.

I'll give it a try as there are a few from sysprem.com but a lot of the emails have unique domains which just seem to be an array of jumbled letters

Filter rules are not an efficient method for handling more than a few missed persistent spam emails; anything more and you need to either hope Virgin Media get a handle on the issue or look for an email service with better spam handling.

Apologies for the spam emails, did you try the filtering suggestion?
