Re: Help over 50 spam and vile emails coming every day since the new BT email started.

@Faykc I used * in my post to denote a wildcard in the email addresses I listed, but you don't need to use that when specifying your rules.  I have set one of mine up as follows if that helps:

 

If From

contains @in.

Set Rule Action

Then

Discard

 

You just have to be careful when setting rules that nothing genuine could get blocked by mistake.

Yes the Rdl ones are particularly virulent.

 

Now I have started to get hundreds a day (12,000 in one week) from this address:

Difficult to keep up!

@andydenyer  when I tried this in settings it told me to add email address or domain and would not let me add what you suggest. Can you advise? thanks

@jennie77 Are you selecting Rules rather than Blocked senders?   Under Blocked senders, you can only add specific email addresses or domains.  Whereas under Rules, you have far more flexibility to specify what to look out for and then what action to take.  I've also added specific rules to send emails from known (genuine) email addresses to my Inbox as the Safe senders list doesn't always seem to work properly either.

Perhaps this screenshot will help:
