Greetings,

I'm getting a lot of daily email that look foriegn but are meaningless.  They come from hot mail and I don't want to block the hot mail domain.  Any ideas on how to block this activity and/or put it in a spam folder?  The following is a typical email:

What email software is your receiving server running?  Does it have any anti-spam components installed?

If you are getting spam emails you may want to get a filter... if the one on your email client isn't sufficient you can go with a service like Postini or Barracuda.

I use Gmail, however, I have some email addresses redirected though my go daddy domain.  Gmail has been pretty good filtering out spam.  For some reason this one is getting though and is really annoying.  Is there any significance to the spam email domain "@hotmail.com via bounce.secureserver.net"  ?  Is it related somehow to my go daddy domains ?

If these mails are being delivered to GMail and not being caught by their spam filtering, then the only thing you can do is click "Report Spam" for the mails in question.
