no sender email problem

  Rebanut 12:43 20 Jul 2004

I am getting lots of mail with no senders name on
them so I cant add them to my blocked senders list, I am using OE and I am with NTL Broadband.
can anyone help please.
Thank you.

Not much that can be done then I expect; try a third party spam protector such as mailwasher which will determine if the mail is spam or not and allow you to delete it before it is downloaded to your machine.

Yes Rebanut, me too.
I assume you mean the ones which have from:blank, to:blank , subject: blank etc. I have seen discussion about these on the net, but no solution as yet. As far as I know Outlook would allow you to ban messages which were not actually addressed to you, but Outlook Express does not offer that option. Hope someone can help you (and me).

If anyone can say for certain which spam detection software can deal with these blank sender e-mails that would be useful. (Sorry Rebanut, I don't mean to hijack your post but I thought there would be lot's of replies to your question)

No problem because it sounds as you are
having same probs as me, thanks anyway
for your response.

Will Mail Washer not catch it?? I understood that mail washer was very like the Spam Trapper that Btyahoo use and they are now catching, not all, but most of those emails for me.

Mailwasher does it pretty well when the origin is blacklisted but I am not 100% satisfied with blacklists - a good few legitimate mailings get blacklisted as people have signed up for newsletters etc and then decide they don't want them.
