As per my previous posting on the subject, for some reason, I have been getting hit recently by SPAM.
HARP Refinance <HARPRefinance@businessthere.eu>
Sitting Solution <SittingSolution@pappend.xyz>
Diet Notice <DietNotice@laseral.xyz>
Diet Notice <DietNotice@dashend.xyz>
Diet Notice <DietNotice@pemender.xyz>
Diet Notice <DietNotice@huffinter.xyz>
and so on…
Now, originally, I would simply click on the Junk e-mail option to Block Sender. The issue with this is that these SPAMmers never use the same e-mail account twice, so this is completely ineffective.
So by examining the sources of the problem, we can very quickly find a nice pattern, all the SPAM is comming from .xyz and .eu domains. Knowing this we can use Outlook’s Blocked Senders to build a simple pattern to block them all! Here’s how it is done.
On the Home tab on the Ribbon, click on the Junk drop-down
It’s that easy. Since having taken this step, I no longer have to deal with any of the garbage sent by these perpetual SPAMmers as their e-mails go directly into my Junk E-mail folder. Life is good once again!
- In this example I am blocking outright any e-mail from a .xyz or .eu domain. That said, you need to carefully examine which domains are SPAMming you and act accordingly by using their suffix.
- Blocked e-mails are not deleted, but rather moved directly to the Junk E-mail folder. As such, you should review the content of that folder from time to time to ensure no legitimate e-mails end up in there.
- At any time you wish, you can go back into the Blocked Senders Tab of the Junk E-mail Options… dialog and highlight an entry and simply delete it by clicking on the Remove button. So nothing is permanent and you can undo this process at any time.
