We have exactly the same issue and no matter what you put into the filter or regex 123box etc etc it still gets through. Come on VM get your act together or I for one will vote with my feet and you have been taking my money since Telewest days.

Just by a little food-for-thought, you don't actually pay for the VM email service.

It's a free add-on with any broadband account, and if you rely heavily on email you can do a lot better with one of various alternatives. Freebie accounts with gmail, hotmail/outlook etc, or a cheap "copy & forward" domain account which you can own for life.

Do the emails from arrive in your Inbox or in your Spam folder?

If they appear in the Spam folder then they are being flagged correctly and being moved there by the system.

If they appear in your inbox then set up a filter to deal with them, see post #14 here adding | to the list.
