I am being plagued by SPAM from the triblive.com domain on my virginmedia.com account, I've tried filters and blacklisting the sender but they are clever and rotate the email name by one character every time or the domain name triiblive, tribblive or tribllive etc
Can this sender be blocked at server level please ?

Whilst you wait for Virgin Media block these emails…
You should be able to match the triblive and its one additional character variant with a regular expression filter rule similar to the following:
where the RegEx (regular expression) field value is:
I am also being spammed by these people but the difference is the domain name @triblive.com never changes. What precedes it always changes, and is always just random letters, so is never repeated. I've tried to filter out all email with @triblive.com in the name but so far this hasn't worked for me, any advice would be appreciated, thanks.
If it comes to your inbox, you should mark it as spam using the button and the VM filter will learn it (eventually). If it is going automatically to your spam folder, then VM filter has already learned. I do this in webmail, but I have heard that it also works when using an email client (no source ATM).
I also take the step of reporting to spam cop, so that it is reported directly to the source that has been abused and they do seem to take action (eventually). Spamcop.net was slightly fiddly to join, but the after that, reporting is easy and it feels like a positive step to take.
Having exactly the same issue. Regardless of blocking 'contains' headlines@, Headlines@trib, @trib, trib and countless others, also trying to block the 'body' contains 304 S. Jones Blvd #1878 Las Vegas, Nevada 89107 (for instance), they're still getting through - between 5 and 20 per day.
Norton is picking this up as spam and putting it in the junk folder, so why can't Virgin pick it up at server level?
