using xp home with ie7; I keep getting an email telling me I have won an Audi A3; I have set up ie7 to block the sender 4 times and set up a rule to block the email in the following ways, where the subject line says 'congratulations', and different variations of the body text: Our random generator', 'possible winner', 'Audi A3' and 'Audi A3!!!' all to delete at server
the body message is as follows, I have replaced my email address in this example:
"Congratulations!
Our random generator has JUST selected your email address my name and email address> from 500.000 newsletter recipients as possible winner of an Audi A3!!!"
yet this message keeps coming, all help and suggestions gratefully accepted

1. Download and install E Prompter
click here
or
2. Change your email address

Did you include the exclamation mark in the filter ? PCs being not that bright will perceive "Congratulations" and "Congratulations!" as being different words.

Right click on the email, select 'junk email' and try selecting 'block senders domain' to blocked senders list, instead of blocking the sender.

They change the script to keep getting past the the blocked subject/name criteria.
