On my iMac 24" desktop running 10.6.8 and using Mail Version 4.6 (1085), I've been getting spam and bouncing them. Here's one 'from' address:

 

Melissa Meyer <MelissaMeyer@work-from-home-online1.com>

 

Interesting thing is the 'from' address always has a different name then, for example, @different-words-here-online1.com. The "-online1.com" is always there, and the 'different words' are always separated by hyphens. Is there a way to use wildcards, like in windows, to block these messages? I was thinking something like *@*-online1.com. 

 

Thanks, Joe.
