    Block unwanted emails in Office 365 (paid subscriber)

    I am receiving tons of unwanted emails. First used 'etc' and added unwanted email sender to 'hosts' file...no improvement. Then, I used the Junk filter and clicked "Block Sender"...still does not stop emails. What next?

    You will probably want to set up blocking filters for the domain the email came from, rather than a specific email address.

    Example...

    "spammer@lottaspam.whereami.com"

    Filter #1 - lottaspam.whereami.com

    Filter #2 - whereami.com

    Thank you for your rapid response! Levenger@levenger.com__.TVX is one of the mass e mailings I am receiving. So, in making a rule for this account, what do I do about the __.TVX?

    Interesting...the .TVX is actually a Term Vector Index file.

    Levenger is a company in Delray Beach, Florida.

    Their Web of Trust (WOT) rating is not exceptional, but not bad either...

    https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/levenger.com

    The domain registration information for Levenger can be found here...

    http://www.networksolutions.com/whoi...n=levenger.com

    You might contact their site administrator - Admin Email: itsupport at levenger.com (replacing at with @ and no spaces).

    For the time being, block levenger.com.

    I had used the HOSTS file for years to block unwanted traffic. Since levenger was not in the header, this did not work. I have used the 'make rule' option to block traffic based on subject line...theirs was something about getting an item at discount. So far, so good. But they were not the only people bugging me. I am waiting for the others to appear. I have tried to get a copy-paste example of the header for you to see, but some ascii type characters are there (and they are not really ascii...such as a diamond with a question mark inside.). I will await for the next event and let you know what's happening.
    Thanks for your support.
