Hi,
I have recently started to get spam from a sender which I do not know how to block.
In each of the EMails, the "Sender" field is blank, so I cannot add it to my blocked list.
Is there anyway that I can block such EMails.

I would never open such an EMail, but others who have access to them may just do that, and I want to try and eliminate that possibility.
Thanks

Hi,

If you would answer a question for me:

1. What email are you using? Such as a client like microsoft outlook or are you using a web based email such as gmail or yahoo?


I really don't think there is any way to block it but I will try to help you.

I use both OE and Hotmail, however, I only get the "problem" spam using OE.

Thanks in advance for your assistance. It is not what you would call a major problem, but its annoying that I cannot block it.
