1500 spam messages from same name

Received hundreds of spams/scams in a few days.  Why couldn't your filters pick this up?  Name of sender is JustForLife

Re: 1500 spam messages from same name

In such an instance, you could try setting up a filter to discard the messages before they get to the Inbox.  If you are still on the old email format, from the Inbox page go to Preferences>>>>Email>>>>>Email Filters, and follow the prompts to see if you can block that domain.  If you are on the new format,  on the Inbox page click on the gear icon in the upper right corner of the screen, then on Settings>>>>>Email>>>>>>Filter Rules.

This one looks to have been directed to just your email address.  Did you report any of them as spam?

Re: 1500 spam messages from same name

Thanks for the suggestion.  I tried that, but the problem was that the "From" address changed on every message, not all from the same domain.  Obviously random fake addresses.

Yes, I marked them all as spam, but could only do one screen at a time.  After a couple hundred, it got annoying.  The way I got blasted, I just figured everybody with a comcast address got the same thing.  Thanks for the reply.
