Receiving email with "Email" prefix

Receiving email with "Email" prefix

I've been receiving email from random spammers addressed to my legitimate email address but with "Email" affixed to the beginning. So it's: TO: Emailmyfirstname.lastname@comcast.net when it should just be TO: myfirstname.lastname@comcast.net


It doesn't go to my spam despite repeatedly sending it there.


Anyone else having this issue?

Re: Receiving email with "Email" prefix

Yes, I have been having the same issue.  I've reported it in at least one other thread.  I've been trying to get the spam filter and/or other filters to recognize this 'spoof' and direct such e-mails to my Spam folder.


I've been unsuccessful.
