    I get 3 emails a day that have no subject or whom they are from. Which kind of makes it difficult to block the sender. If I try to block the sender it gives me a message that says, one or more of the selected senders could not be added to your blocked senders list.
    The worst part is I have to keep them in my received mail account, because if I right click on it to delete it, it opens that email. Seeing I'm getting about 3 per day, I'm guessing it's not going to take long b4 my account it full.
    Any help with my problem will be very much appreciated.

    Try blocking the domain;
    Click "Tools"
    Go to "Message Rules" in the drop-down menu
    Select "Blocked Senders List"

    Click the "Add" button in the dialouge box that appears
    Type in the offending domain (in this instance "sexpods.com"

    Click "OK"
    Click "OK" again

    hopefully that will do the trick
    if not add "mailer7.sexpods.com" too

    Be advised, this method blocks all mail from the entire domain you add to the list. Therefor it might not be a good method to use if the domain would be something like "hotmail.com" or something that you might get mail from that you actually want.

    I'm guessing this domain might be safe to block though

    I knew my saviour would come to my rescue.
    I already added this one "sexpods.com" to my block senders list, so I'll just have to wait and see if the other one works.
    I think the problems lies with there being no entry in whom it's from that is making it hard for me to block it. Fingers crossed that the other addy works.

    I don't think I'll have a problem with that at all!!


    Thanks Mr C for taking the time outta your busy schedule.

    What really spoked me about this particular email was reading paragraph 7 this article; http://zdnet.com.com/2100-1105_2-1013494.html

    i feel u using MS Outlook and not Outlook Express (from the pic u posted).
    if i m right...then go to Tools --> Rules Wizard
    chose the folder "Inbox" from the drop down menu.
    Click on New...and then start creating a rule from template.
    click on next and in the next window...check on where my name is NOT in the To box.
    in the pane below that windows, click on "specified" folder and chose deleted items.
    click on next 3 times and then finish.
    this will set a rule that will delete most of the junk mails.
    it works for me this way and hope it will work for u too.
